BOSH Release for haproxy
Questions? Pop in our slack channel!
This BOSH release is an attempt to get a more customizable/secure haproxy release than what is provided in cf-release. It allows users to blacklist internal-only domains, preventing potential Host header spoofing from allowing unauthorized access of internal APIs. It also allows for better control over haproxy's timeouts, for greater resiliency under heavy load.
To deploy this BOSH release:
git clone https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/haproxy-boshrelease.git cd haproxy-boshrelease export BOSH_ENVIRONMENT=<alias> export BOSH_DEPLOYMENT=haproxy bosh2 deploy manifests/haproxy.yml \ -v haproxy-backend-port=80 \ -v "haproxy-backend-servers=[10.10.10.10,10.10.10.11]"
To make alterations to the deployment you can use the
bosh2 deploy [-o operator-file.yml] flag to provide operations files.
Alternately you can build a manifest using
You can either use the templates + examples provided to merge this in with an existing CloudFoundry deployment, or create a new deployment using this command:
make_manifest <aws-ec2|warden> <comma-separated-list-of-router-servers> <additional_templates>
make_manifest requires spruce v1.8.9 or newer.
