Amazon Route53 service limit on health checks


Every AWS service has specific limits on how many resources a user can launch in a specific region. The limit of these services is defined by AWS to provide high availability to the resources being used by the user. While availing the services of Amazon Route53, it is necessary for you to be aware of the service limit on the number of health checks you can create to avoid any capacity planning issues.

Monitor your Amazon Route53 health check limit

Route53 performs necessary operations such as domain registration, DNS traffic routing and performing health checks on your resources. Each health check that you create can monitor either the health of a specified resource, such as a web server. To check the status of the created health checks, you can log in to your AWS console.

AWS sets a service limit of 200 health checks per account in a region. It is necessary for you to keep tabs on the service limit of health checks. This helps in better resource planning and cloud infrastructure management.
