Cluster.init called with contact_points specified, but no load_balancing_policy

Hi have some issue to connect my cassandra from my python connector

Connotor.py contain below code

from cassandra.cluster import Cluster
from cassandra.auth import PlainTextAuthProvider
from cassandra import ReadTimeout
import os

class CassandraConnection():

    def getConnection():
        auth_provider = PlainTextAuthProvider(username ='admin', password='Dog2019')
        cluster=Cluster(['a5ad8e558c23e9a524-1196365.us-west-2.elb.amazonaws.com'], auth_provider=auth_provider)

        session = cluster.connect()
        session.set_keyspace('tonnage')
        cluster.connect()

        return session

While run my python code getting this error

@devopsdymyr_180369 You're getting a warning because you have not specified a load balancing policy in the connection properties.

Also, you're using an elastic load balancer in front of Cassandra and it's an anti-pattern. The Cassandra drivers have built-in load balancing features which you need to take advantage of. You need to provide a list of IP addresses instead -- usually, these are the same as the seeds list (though it doesn't have to be the same).

See the Python driver Getting Started guide for more info. Cheers!
