Description

Installs haproxy and prepares the configuration location.

Changes

v1.0.3:

  • [COOK-620] haproxy::app_lb's template should use the member cloud private IP by default

v1.0.2:

  • fix regression introduced in v1.0.1

v1.0.1:

  • account for the case where load balancer is in the pool

v1.0.0:

  • Use node.chef_environment instead of node['app_environment']

Requirements

Platform

Tested on Ubuntu 8.10 and higher.

Cookbooks:

Attributes

  • node['haproxy']['member_port'] - the port that member systems will be listening on, default 80
  • node['haproxy']['enable_admin'] - whether to enable the admin interface. default true. Listens on port 22002.
  • node['haproxy']['app_server_role'] - used by the app_lb recipe to search for a specific role of member systems. Default webserver.

Usage

Use either the default recipe or the app_lb recipe.

When using the default recipe, modify the haproxy.cfg.erb file with listener(s) for your sites/servers.

The app_lb recipe is designed to be used with the application cookbook, and provides search mechanism to find the appropriate application servers. Set this in a role that includes the haproxy::app_lb recipe. For example,

name "load_balancer"
description "haproxy load balancer"
run_list("recipe[haproxy::app_lb]")
override_attributes(
  "haproxy" => {
    "app_server_role" => "webserver"
  }
)

The search uses the node's chef_environment. For example, create environments/production.rb, then upload it to the server with knife

% cat environments/production.rb
name "production"
description "Nodes in the production environment."
% knife environment from file production.rb
