disable frontend

Stop routing traffic to a frontend that is declared in your HAProxy Enterprise configuration file.


Use the disable frontend command to stop routing traffic to a frontend.


  1. To disable this frontend:

    frontend www
       bind *:80
       default_backend servers
    backend servers
      server s1
  2. Run the disable frontend command with the name of the frontend:

    $ echo "disable frontend www" | \
       sudo socat stdio unix-connect:/var/run/hapee-2.5/hapee-lb.sock

HAProxy Enterprise marks the frontend with status "STOP" on the stats page.
