So im new to haproxy, also, im no Linux admin, but i know my way around. i am working with Ubuntu 18.04.
the picture above is an example of what im trying to accomplish.
I have 1 haproxy server and 2 nodes at 2 separate locations, currently set up for testing purposes. Both locations are currently working within the network just fine. What i need, is if SITE 1, NODE 1 goes down, i need all traffic to be forwarded to SITE 2, Node 1…etc.
Eventually, there will be 3 sites all together.
Do i need a haproxy server to load-balance my haproxy servers? Is that a thing?
