HAproxy is a high-performance and highly-robust TCP and HTTP load balancer which provides cookie-based persistence, content-based switching, SSL off-loading, advanced traffic regulation with surge protection, automatic failover, run-time regex-based header control, Web-based reporting and management interface, advanced logging to help trouble-shooting buggy applications and/or networks, and a few other features. Its own event-driven state machine achieves 100,000 connections per second and surpasses GigaEthernet on modern hardware, even with tens of thousands of simultaneous connections.
Not the only problem
Interesting article. I would add that another major problem of
autoconf is that the configure script stops on the FIRST missing
dependency. This makes compilation sessions very long because
if it needs 10 additionnal packages, you have to restart from the
beginning after each download, and sometimes you cannot
download from the same place you're compiling !
I would strongly prefer a report saying that I need to add X,Y
and Z packages so that I can download them all and compile
