Subject [users@httpd] Checking backend downtime
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2019 15:49:50 GMT
Hello,I configured proxy
with proxy loadbalancer to route traffic to backend application
servers.Balancer members do
not detect the unavailability of the backend (downtime) and directs
traffic to the broken node. As a result, users are waiting for a
response from the broken backend servers.I want the balancer
member to change its state to Err when detect backend downtime. I
read in the documentation
that the unavailability of the backend should be examined using the
ping parameter.  ping	.. “This feature has been added to
avoid problems with hung and busy backends.”..  When
defining a balancer member, I use the ping option:ProxyPass "/"
"" ping=2..The configuration
does not work as I expected – loadbalancer still directs traffic to
the unavailable node. I'm listening packets using tcpdump and I do
not see additional packets to port 2010 which should be associated
with ping HTTP/1.1 100-Continue requests.I use Debian 10 with
Server version: Apache/2.4.38 (Debian).How to setup ping
mechanism correctly to detects unavailable backend servers?Thanks,Paweł
