Being one of the best load-balancers out there for Layer 4 and Layer 7 traffic, HAProxy has become one of the piece of software that I like the most when it comes to proxying requests to a set of backends.

As it’s application is pretty extensive, some insights arise once you start dealing it for a long time.

Here is where you can find some knowledge that I gained from it.

If you’re looking for some specific configuration of have a special need that you can’t find a solution for, drop me a message! I’m very into HAProxy and would like to help: I’m @cirowrc on Twitter (or you can just send me an email - see About me).
