Yes I just did this as well (see my comment above). #!/bin/sh exit $(netstat -t | grep ESTABLISHED | wc -l) ... and check program too_busy with path "/..." if status > 16384 then alert

Or easier just write a script whose exit code is the number of sockets and use check program ...

Right! Having the single LB is the "problem". I agree that throughput wouldn't be a problem generally. But I am concerned about other resources such as RAM, which in my case is limited. There's only so many connections that can be hosted on a single SLB before RAM runs out.

Is that internal RRDNS you mean? Neat, I didn't think of that. Re: open connections... I'm exploring options for an app that requires sending updates to connected clients over time as events occur somewhere on the backend. I am torn between a custom TCP server or lots of open HTTP connections behind a SLB. Thank you for your comments.

In other words scale up? Such a LB will still be maxed out at some number of connections (etc.). What then? That's really my question. Thanks!

I don't have a preference. I updated the question to be clearer.
