Description 2018-07-04 08:24:51 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently,we have no way to set the HAProxy load balancer default configuration in Advanced Installation with Multiple Masters.

Actual results:
need to modify lb default configuration manually.

Expected results:
Provide a way to set the default lb configuration such as add configurable variables for lb section in inventory file.

Additional info:
For example,customer would like to change default balance policy from source to leastconn.

modify the backend check health rule on HAProxy to confirm whether Master reaches the maximum number of requests,not just check if port 8433 is health.

version:ocp 3.9

Comment 1 Scott Dodson 2018-07-05 12:24:17 UTC
The load balancer deployed via openshift-ansible is only meant to demonstrate HA API capabilities and is not intended to be a general purpose configurable load balancer. Does the customer not have another load balancing solution in place?
