shutdown session

Terminate a client's session.


When a client connects to HAProxy Enterprise, the load balancer maintains a session with that client until their connection with the backend server has finished. You can see active sessions with the show sess command. Use shutdown session to stop a specific session.


Use show sess to display a list of active sessions:

$ echo "show sess" | sudo socat stdio /var/run/hapee-2.1/hapee-lb.sock

The first field is the session's unique identifier, which you can pass to shutdown session to terminate the session:

$ echo "shutdown session 0x55f09d21c9e0" | sudo socat stdio /var/run/hapee-2.1/hapee-lb.sock
