Increase HAProxy Backend Server Session Limit
Just as the title says.
In the HAProxy Statistics Page, i see that each of my Backend Servers have Limit of 200 for Backend Sessions.
I am Running multiple Icecast servers (icecast is a audio streaming server if anyone doesnt know) behind HAProxy and i am noticing that each connection to the web stream counts as a session. I am not comfortable with the limit of 200 and would like to increase it.
does anyone know how?
Screen shot example of my problem below.
and if you need more information to be able to assist. please let me know. i'm in a bit of a time crunch to fix this. :)
hey there, were you able to do this?
@uz890ed I just figured it out now. In the front end options there's an option called max connections that let's you set that.
I'm not sure why but it seems to drop the last 0 for me. Setting it to 5000 gives me 500 connections max. Setting it to 500 gives me 50 connections max.
@crowfather I had the same issue - your workaround worked for me too, would be nice to know if this is a bug or what the logic is behind it.
I get that the backend limit is 1/10th the front end... but still not sure what this resolves.
If you set the front-end to 500 does that mean the back-end is really 500 but is only showing 50. Should we be setting it to 10X the value we want or is it that it only incorrectly displays this way?
