Load balance StoreFront with HAProxy


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Hi Daniel


People typically use Citrix ADC (Netscaler), F5 or Windows NLB to load balance StoreFront.  To my knowledge HAproxy is  untested internally within Citrix but may well work if it is capable of persistent (sticky) load balancing using either Source IP or CookieInsert in the same way Citrix ADC does this.  Unfortunately, I have no experience load balancing StoreFront server groups with HAProxy but you could use this article as a basis for identifying what needs to be done.  Receiver for web will not function correctly if a non persistent load balancer is used and all requests for the web session must be directed to the same backend web server.


Sorry I cant be more help.  If you wished to use either Windows NLB or Citrix ADC I could assist you more.

Here are the relevant portions of the config I'm using successfully. Note that I'm using SSL termination with unencrypted connections to the Storefront servers; the equivalent lines if you're using SSL are included but commented out.
