get all of your ELB names for some sort of reason

so tony says i need to blog that shit.  so i am blogging that shit.

sometimes when i need to make a large amount of changes to several ELB’s i need a quick way to throw all of the names into a single file.  here’s a fast way to use the AWS API CLI tools to grab all of your ELB names.

prereq:  actual CLI access, your keypair (use dialt0ne’s aks to switch between your IAM accounts), the ELB CLI tools and a few minutes.

Put that shit into a text file:

$ elb-describe-lbs > elbs

cat that shit and pipe into awk printing only the second field which contains the actual ELB names:

$ cat elbs| awk '{print $2}' > elb-names

now look at that shit and confirm you got all your ELBs

$ cat elb-names
that-shit-01
that-shit-02
that-shit-03

now go listen to slayer.
