rh-haproxy18 - HAProxy is a TCP/HTTP reverse proxy which is particularly suited for high availability environments. Indeed, it can:

  • route HTTP requests depending on statically assigned cookies
  • spread load among several servers while assuring server persistence through the use of HTTP cookies
  • switch to backup servers in the event a main one fails
  • accept connections to special ports dedicated to service monitoring
  • stop accepting connections without breaking existing ones
  • add, modify, and delete HTTP headers in both directions
  • block requests matching particular patterns
  • report detailed status to authenticated users from a URI intercepted from the application

# 1. Install a package with repository for your system:
# On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS repository:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl

# On RHEL, enable RHSCL repository for you system:
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

# 2. Install the collection:
$ sudo yum install rh-haproxy18

# 3. Start using software collections:
$ scl enable rh-haproxy18 bash

At this point you should be able to use varnish just as a normal application. Some usage examples follow:

$ systemctl start rh-haproxy18-haproxy
