I am running haproxy-1.3.26-1.el5 and using the cookie option so that the user will use the same proxy server for browsing. The problem is that if one of the proxy server goes down then the user still keeping the same server and is not able to browse. Although in the web console I can see that the server is showing as red. My thought was that althought I am using cookie but in case of server offline the server will get new server from Haproxy.
cookie SERVERID insert indirect nocache
server proxy01 10.0.0.1:80 cookie p1 check
server proxy02 10.0.0.2:80 cookie p2 check
Need some help in this.
