Pike Series Release Notes


New Features

  • HAProxy services that use backend nodes that are not in the Ansible inventory can now be specified manually by setting haproxy_backend_nodes to a list of name and ip_addr settings.


New Features

  • The new option haproxy_backend_arguments can be utilized to add arbitrary options to a HAProxy backend like tcp-check or http-check.

  • Haproxy-server role allows to set up tunable parameters. For doing that it is necessary to set up a dictionary of options in the config files, mentioning those which have to be changed (defaults for the remaining ones are programmed in the template). Also “maxconn” global option made to be tunable.

Upgrade Notes

  • The haproxy_bufsize variable has been removed and made a part of the haproxy_tuning_params dictionary.
