I have setup 5 t1.micro EC2's behind an AWS load balancer.
All the instances slow down once they are connected to the LB. Eight out of 10 requests takes more than 30s even when I do the requests directly to the instances (bypassing LB). The CPU load of the instances doesn't seem to be the problem. When I remove one of the instances from the LB, it responds just fine. As soon as it is added back to the LB the requests slow down again.
Can anyone give me some clues as to why the instances respond so much slower once the LB is hooked up?
Thanks in advance
