I setup HAProxy 1.8.7 in my centos7 server a year ago and it’s been working great so far. But scaling out is required at this moment, I decided to use the multi threading feature.
I just added nbthread=4 in the config and rebuilt the haproxy with
make TARGET=2628 USE_THREAD=1 USE_LIBCRYPT=1 USE_LINUX_TPROXY=1 USE_OPENSSL=1 USE_ZLIB=1
The haproxy -vv command displays “Built with multi-threading support.” And I can clearly see USE_THREAD=1 in the “Build options:” section. I thought it’s all set !
But restarting haproxy service fails and asks me to type “systemctl status haproxy.service”
The command gives me this message
: [ALERT] 330/094425 (12780) : HAProxy is not compiled with threads support, please check build options for USE_THREAD.
Is rebuilding HAProxy in the same system not recommended? should I completely root out the regacy HAProxy and install it as a new one? I’ve googled this but to no avail. Removing nbthread in the config definitely gets my haproxy working again.
haproxy -vv says it’s built with USE_THREAD and built with multi-threading support. What might possibly wrong?
