Control: 1 Auto Scaling groups associated with a load balancer should use load balancer health checks
This control checks whether your Auto Scaling groups that are associated with a load balancer are using Elastic Load Balancing health checks.

- Open the Amazon EC2 console
- On the navigation pane, under
Auto Scaling, choose Auto Scaling Groups
- To select the group from the list, choose the right box
- Choose Edit
