Subject Re: How to load balance across hierarchical Proxies
Date Tue, 14 Nov 2017 16:02:09 GMT
I noticed that there is problem with DNS resolution.
When I send http request  directly from the node on which the traffic server is installed
 to the origin server, I am able to receive response from the server. That seems the DNS is
working. But When I use Traffic server, It is giving 502 server not found error. When I debugged
with “dns” option, it is returns response code 3.
Does Traffic server need any special DNS mapping.

I first tried with only one level of proxying but unable to do when I use hostnames in the
remap config.
It resolves the hostname for traffic server node but the dns resolving does not happens for
origin servers. WhenI use IP addresses for origin servers, the loadbalancer is working. But
I need hostnames to be used for origin servers in the remap.config when I go hierarchical

Any pointers on where to look to solve this issue will be appreciated.

I am trying to distribute the load balancing between servers connected with three proxies.

In my setup, I have three proxy servers and each of them have two origin servers and one client.
I would like to balance the load across servers connected with other proxies when the rate
of incoming requests are more.
To begin, I started with round robin policy.
First I tried to add the proxy2 and proxy 2 as one of the origin servers in remap config as

map http://UHLB<http://uhlb/> http://UHLB<http://uhlb/> @pparam=--policy=roundrobin
@pparam= @pparam= @pparam= @pparam=
The last two IP addresses are proxy 2 and proxy3.
But It did not work.
I read about parent proxying. But in my case, I want to load balance. May I please know to
configure to achieve load balancing across hierarchical proxies.
