pylon-balancer

build status

this is a pylon-client which queries/subscribes the pylon-server for keys holding arrays containing proxy-informations. these proxy-informations will be used to create a proxy-table for http-proxy.

  • apps can report for duty by telling the pylon-server the proxy-informations
  • one or more pylon-balancers can connect to the pylon-server and proxy requests according to the proxy-informations
  • pylon-balancer implements sticky-sessions per ip (idea shamelessly stolen from https://github.com/indutny/sticky-session)
