2. On the navigation panel, under LOAD BALANCING, choose Load Balancers.

3. Select your load balancer.

4. On the Description tab, choose Configure Access Logs.

5. On the Configure Access Logs page, do the following:

  • Choose Enable access logs.
  • Leave Interval as the default, 60 minutes.
  • For S3 location, type the name of your S3 bucket, including the prefix (for example, my-loadbalancer-logs/my-app). You can specify the name of an existing bucket or a name for a new bucket.
  • (Optional) If the bucket does not exist, choose Create this location for me. You must specify a name that is unique across all existing bucket names in Amazon S3 and follows the DNS naming conventions. For more information, see Rules for bucket naming in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
