Ansible Role: HAProxy

Build Status Ansible Role

Installs HAProxy on RedHat/CentOS and Debian/Ubuntu Linux servers.

Note: This role officially supports HAProxy versions 1.5 and 1.6. Future versions may require some rework.

Requirements

If SELinux is enabled on CentOS 7 and you are using non-standard ports you must include role: openmicroscopy.selinux-utils before this role in your playbook.

Role Variables

Available variables are listed below, along with default values (see defaults/main.yml):

haproxy_socket: /var/lib/haproxy/stats

The socket through which HAProxy can communicate (for admin purposes or statistics). To disable/remove this directive, set haproxy_socket: '' (an empty string).

haproxy_chroot: /var/lib/haproxy

The jail directory where chroot() will be performed before dropping privileges. To disable/remove this directive, set haproxy_chroot: '' (an empty string). Only change this if you know what you're doing!

haproxy_user: haproxy
haproxy_group: haproxy

The user and group under which HAProxy should run. Only change this if you know what you're doing!

haproxy_frontends:
- name: 'hafrontend'
  address: '*:80'
  extra_addresses:
    - '*:8080'
  #bind_params: 'param1 param2'
  #extra bind parameters, 'ssl' for example
  mode: 'http'
  #params:
  #  - 'some extra frontend param, acl for example'
  backend: 'habackend'
  # Optional:
  timeout client: 10s

List of HAProxy frontends.

haproxy_backends:
- name: 'habackend'
  # All fields are optional apart from servers
  mode: 'http'
  balance_method: 'roundrobin'
  options:
    - "haproxy_backend_httpchk: 'HEAD / HTTP/1.1\r\nHost:localhost'"
  params:
    - 'stick on src'

  - 'ssl-default-bind-ciphers ABCD+KLMJ:...'
  - 'ssl-default-bind-options no-sslv3'

A list of extra global variables to add to the global configuration section inside haproxy.cfg.

Advanced users can override the template used for haproxy.cfg by setting haproxy_cfg_template. In this case most of the above role variables will be ignored unless the default template is copied.
