HAProxy (stands for High Availability Proxy) is a popular open source TCP/HTTP Load Balancing software and proxying solution for TCP and HTTP-based applications. HAProxy’s mode of operation makes its integration into existing architectures very easy and riskless, while still offering enough security so as not to expose fragile web servers to the net. It is fast, reliable and particularly suited for very high traffic web sites and powers quite a number of the world's most visited ones.
By collecting a multitude of metrics that allow high visibility into HAProxy’s performance, Applications Manager's HAProxy monitor makes HAProxy monitoring simple and effective.
Automatically discover your entire service topology of your data pipeline and applications wth Applications Manager's HAProxy monitor. Perform HAProxy performance monitoring and track the maximum number of connections HAProxy can handle. Monitoring this metric is essential to ensure your server has sufficient capacity to handle all concurrent sessions. Monitor the number of currently open pipes and manage resources so that your HAProxy applications run optimally.
Applications Manager's HAProxy monitoring tool collects frontend details like client connections and requests. Track HAProxy performance metrics like frontend metrics which provide information about the client's interaction with the load balancer itself. Keep an eye on the frontend request rate, gauging the peaks and drops is essential to ensure continuous service availability. Track your session creation rate over time to discern a traffic spike. Also track the number of requests denied due to security restrictions and be alerted in the event of a significant increase in denials with HAProxy management system.
Applications Manager's HAProxy performance monitoring system measures the communication between HAProxy and your backend servers that handle client requests. Ensure that backend connection failures are acted upon immediately. Track the retry rate (the number of times a connection to a backend server was retried) to drill down to the true cause of an increase in errors. Monitor average response times to effectively measure the latency of your load-balancing setup. Monitoring your backend is critical to ensuring smooth and responsive performance of your web applications.
With Applications Manager's HAProxy monitoring tool, you can monitor HAProxy health status and of each front and backend server in your HAProxy setup. Monitoring the health of your HAProxy servers gives you the information you need to quickly respond to outages as they occur.
You can correlate frontend metrics with backend metrics for a more comprehensive view of your infrastructure and quickly identify potential hotspots. Applications Manager's HAProxy management system helps you become aware of performance bottlenecks and take quick remedial actions before your end users experience issues.
