How do I use a Node Balancer internally?

What's the suggested path for setting up a non-public facing Load Balancer?

A load balancer that sits between my containers in K8s, does automatic discovery service, etc.

To my current understanding, if I use a Node Balancers public IP, it will count against the traffic usage.

New to this!
Much appreciated

EDIT: I think I just realized this is built into K8's…

It looks like you’ve found how K8's handles this, as mentioned in their docs: Services, Load Balancing, and Networking | Kubernetes

If you want something different, you likely will have to roll out a solution of your own design. Having more specific details would help if you’re looking for suggestions.
