Endpoints Load Balancer

GoDoc

Overview

Package endpoints provides an implementation of a client-side load balancer that distributes client request across a collection of Kubernetes endpoints using a basic Round-robin algorithm. The endpoints load balancer does not operate in the data path and only manages a list of backends based on services defined in a Kubernetes cluster.

Use Cases

  • Reduce latency by avoiding DNS lookups. Endpoints are returned as IP addresses and one or more ports.
  • Reduce latency by avoiding extra hops. Client side load balancing enables direct pod to pod communication.

Drawbacks

  • Increased load on the Kubernetes API server. Each client watches for changes and runs a reconciliation loop against the Kubernetes API.
  • External dependency. Kubernetes service discovery works out of the box; using this library adds a new dependency.

Example Usage

See the example application for usage details.
