How We Achieved 2-Million RPS: HAProxy on Arm Processors

Kailas Jawadekar & Nenad Merdanovic

Arm brings brilliant people together in a global ecosystem that is sparking the world’s potential. Arm technology enables specialized processing built on the economics, design freedom and accessibility of general-purpose compute that has, so far, led to more than 180 billion chips being shipped by our partners.

In this presentation, we will discuss Arm’s global ecosystem and highlight HAProxy’s achievement of over 2 million forwarded requests per second on AWS’s Arm Neoverse-based Graviton2-powered instances, as well as the associated DPbench project created by HAProxy Community Project Lead, Willy Tarreau.
