To my haproxy i redirect the traffic to single server in backend, i need set another server what work only in case of failure of first server, it's possible? I read the guide, but in balance algorithm don't have found any answer

  • haproxy is used for load balancing it assumes all backends will normally be operational. I think what you are trying to do is setup failover. – Aditya K Apr 10 '15 at 15:24
  • So it's not possible? – hellb0y77 Apr 10 '15 at 15:30
  • I dont know enough about haproxy to provide an authoritative answer, but I'm guessing not. You might want to look at Corosync / Pacemaker instead if you are sure you want a failover cluster rather than a load balanced cluster. – Aditya K Apr 10 '15 at 15:33
  • Use haproxy because in the future i plan to have more servers to balance, now i only need one – hellb0y77 Apr 10 '15 at 15:44

Yes it's possible, i set a backup server adding backup after check like this:

backend test
 server 01 10.0.0.1:80 check
 server 02 10.0.0.2:80 check backup
