If you are confused about the commit order for the v1.5.11 release please check the Release Notes for an explanation.
The 1.5.11 tag was wrongly pointing to commit 0297494e9a00f87d3e387b8c6ff0408c2f5db6a0 instead of commit 446fbba59da42ed73df67c3d738b9945dbf0790a. I have updated the v1.5.11 tag to point to the correct version and created v1.5.11-wrong tag to point to the old (wrong) version.
fabio is a fast, modern, zero-conf load balancing HTTP(S) and TCP router for deploying applications managed by consul.
Register your services in consul, provide a health check and fabio will start routing traffic to them. No configuration required. Deployment, upgrading and refactoring has never been easier.
fabio is developed and maintained by The Fabio Authors.
It supports (Full feature list)
- TLS termination with dynamic certificate stores
- Raw TCP proxy
- TCP+SNI proxy for full end-to-end TLS without decryption
- HTTPS upstream support
- Websockets and SSE
- Dynamic reloading without restart
- Traffic shaping for "blue/green" deployments,
- Circonus, Graphite and StatsD/DataDog metrics
Watch Kelsey Hightower demo Consul, Nomad, Vault and fabio at HashiConf EU 2016.

# go 1.9 or higher is required go get github.com/fabiolb/fabio (>= go1.9) brew install fabio (OSX/macOS stable) brew install --devel fabio (OSX/macOS devel) docker pull fabiolb/fabio (Docker) https://github.com/fabiolb/fabio/releases (pre-built binaries)
Register your service in consul.
Make sure that each instance registers with a unique ServiceID and a service name without spaces.
Register a health check in consul as described here.
By default fabio only watches services which have a passing health check, unless overriden with registry.consul.service.status.

# HTTP/S examples urlprefix-/css # path route urlprefix-i.com/static # host specific path route urlprefix-mysite.com/ # host specific catch all route urlprefix-/foo/bar strip=/foo # path stripping (forward '/bar' to upstream) urlprefix-/foo/bar proto=https # HTTPS upstream urlprefix-/foo/bar proto=https tlsskipverify=true # HTTPS upstream and self-signed cert # TCP examples urlprefix-:3306 proto=tcp # route external port 3306
Make sure the prefix for HTTP routes contains at least one slash (
See the full list of options in the Documentation.
Start fabio without a config file (assuming a running consul agent on
localhost:8500) Watch the log output how fabio picks up the route to your service. Try starting/stopping your service to see how the routing table changes instantly.
Send all your HTTP traffic to fabio on port
9999. For TCP proxying see TCP proxy.
