An Auto Scaling Group (ASG) is not configured to monitor the health of the ELB on EC2 instances it's deploying. If an ASG is configured without health checks on it's Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) it will not detect if one any of the EC2 instances is failing due to an issue with it's availability in the ELB which could affect the availability of the application. ASGs should be configured to monitor the health of ELB for EC2 instances.
