How to optimize your HAProxy server for best performance

Nenad Merdanovic
Principal Solutions Architect, HAProxy Technologies

Your load balancer needs to handle plenty of traffic to sustain your applications and keep them highly available.

The task is even more demanding when SSL encryption, compression, and HTTP processing are taken into account. In this workshop, you will learn what you can do to squeeze the best performance out of the hardware and software of your load balancer.

We will look at settings at the hardware, operating system, and kernel level. We’ll discuss CPU affinity, threads, and SSL/TLS configurations. We will then dive deep into optimizing your HAProxy configuration by using the most performant directives for rewriting, routing and manipulating traffic.
