Load balancer HTTPS health checks

The health check does not support HTTPS.

The load balancer health check supports TCP ports and HTTP service but not HTTPS.

In my case, all http traffic is denied or redirected with a 301 to HTTPS, so the load balancer always gets a 301 and assumes the server is okay even if the HTTPS request responds with a 500.

    I need HTTPS health checks as my server config only accepts HTTPS traffic (redirecting HTTPS traffic to HTTPS).

    I need HTTPS health checks in order to load balance Kubernetes API servers.

    Indeed this seems like a pretty big oversight and almost dealbreaker for the Loadbalancer feature
