Guides - NodeBalancers
The Linode CLI is a wrapper around the Linode API that allows you to manage your Linode account from the command line. Virtually any task that can be done through the Linode Manager can be done through the CLI, making it an excellent tool for scripting.
Create a new NodeBalancer:
linode-cli nodebalancers create --region us-east --label new-balancer
Create a configuration for a NodeBalancer:
linode-cli nodebalancers config-create $nodebalancer_id
Attach a Node to a NodeBalancer:
linode-cli nodebalancers node-create --address 220.127.116.11:80 --label node-1
To delete a node, you will need the ID of the NodeBalancer, configuration, and node:
linode-cli nodebalancers node-delete $nodebalancer_id $config_id $node_id
Other actions are available. Use
linode-cli nodebalancers --help for a complete list.
