I’ve been running HAProxy for about a year at the front of my application as a proxy and load balancer for HTTP/TCP traffic. I now need to proxy UDP traffic, which HAProxy doesn’t support. The simplest solution I can think of is to run up an instance of Nginx in parallel to existing HAProxy instance to handle the UDP traffic, leaving HAProxy unchanged.
Has anyone tried this, or know of any reason why it wouldn’t work? Or does anyone know of a better solution?
