Add first HAProxy configuration file

parent d1f7df70
......@@ -65,6 +65,25 @@ The project is currently deployed using an Apache Web Server instance which serv
by itself and redirects requests other than `/index.html` to the Spring backend running on one of the
workers picked by HAProxy which is running on the frontend server.
## Introducing further workers
Currently three worker servers are used with each one running one instance of our backend application,
an Apache HTTP Server instance and a CockroachDB node.
At the present time some configuration files need to be edited in order to introduce further workers.
The workers are automatically assigned an IP address of the form `192.168.10.(10 + N)` where `N` is
the index of the worker starting with 1.
The IP address `` is reserved for the frontend server running the load balancer.
The following files currently need to be changed when one wants to add or remove a worker:
- The `num_workers` variable in `Vagrantfile`
- The `haproxy.cfg` file located at `/ansible/roles/frontend/files/haproxy/haproxy.cfg`
- `/ansible/roles/worker/files/systemd/system/cockroach.service.d/override.conf`
Both of the latter two files should be changed at some point to make use of Ansible's templating
feature so that only `num_workers` has to be edited, at least this should be possible.
