Dynamic server weights with HAProxy

Published Updated
Cover image for: Dynamic server weights with HAProxy

In a break from my usual pieces about product and entrepreneurship, I'm writing about a set of scripts we published earlier.

haproxy-dynamic-weight is a tool which can dynamically and automatically allocate work across HAProxied servers to get the most from them. We use this at Reincubate to reduce load on virtual servers when they're suffering from abnormal CPU steal.

We built this tool after finding that there wasn't an Open Source solution out there to do what we needed. We've made them freely available under the GPL and published them on GitHub. Happy hacking, and I hope they're useful!

Can we improve this article?

We love hearing from users: why not drop us an email, leave a comment, or tweet @reincubate?
