Managing and monitoring HAProxy instances

The Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM) supports HAProxy version 1.4.24 or later. When you add a host on which you have provisioned the HAProxy instances to Citrix ADM, it discovers the HAProxy instances on the host and enables you to manage and monitor them. Citrix ADM shows you the following types of information about the HAProxy configuration on the instances:

  • Frontend – Defines how requests should be forwarded to the back end. These are the discovered entities in Citrix ADM that load balance the traffic.
  • Backend – The set of servers that receive the forwarded requests.
  • Servers – The servers among which HAProxy load balances the traffic.

For more information, see http://www.haproxy.org/download/1.7/doc/configuration.txt.

Citrix ADM provides an HAProxy App Dashboard on which you can monitor the frontends in real-time. For more information, see HAProxy App Dashboard. Also, it enables you to view the details of the frontends, backends, and servers configured on the HAProxy instances.

To manage and monitor HAProxy instances on a HAProxy host, you need to add the HAProxy host to Citrix ADM. For more information, see Adding HAProxy Instances.
