1. HAProxy - Performance Tuning

    • use 2 distinct NICs
    • ensure connection tracking is off !!!
    • add to haproxy.cfg
    option http-server-close
    • add to /etc/sysctl.conf
    net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000
    • If still not good, try the following (or buy a HW load balancer)
    net.ipv4.tcp_tw_reuse = 1
    net.core.somaxconn = 10000
    net.ipv4.tcp_max_syn_backlog = 10000 …
