Subject [users@httpd] Dynamically Updating Rewrite rules etc.
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2009 20:34:35 GMT
Hi all

Our architecture has a cluster of Apache servers behind an industrial
strength load balancer. The Apache servers basically examine each
request (REST requests, actually) and dispatch to back end
applications depending on this parsing.

At this stage, each back-end application has to be set up in the
Apache configuration manually. In other words, we add rewrite rules
and proxy accordingly. Although the server configuration is propagated
out easily enough, it still requires a restart of each Apache server.

It would be nice if there was a way to dynamically update this routing
information without having to resort to updating configuration for
each server (even though they're all the same). What would be even
nicer is if each back-end application could publish/broadcast it's
existence and for the Apache servers to pick this up. Without getting
into complicated LDAP stuff, has anyone seen this type of setup and
solution before?
