What could we use as the load balancer tool for influxdb high availability?

Hello everybody,

I am seeing influxdb high availability page: https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v0.12/high_availability/relay/

The page mention a load balancer tool that distribute difference requirements to relay or influxdb. If write or UDP requirements, send them to influxdb relay. if query requirements, send them to influxdb directly.

My questions are:

  1. Influxdata have the load balancer tool plugin? if so, how to get and use it?
  2. Can we use HAproxy as the load balancer tool? If so, how to filter the requirement? just by their difference requirement route?

Thanks a lot.

If you are looking to set this up, additional documentation is here: https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb-relay

Thanks for your response.
Do you have load balancer tools to recommend? Thanks.

@ShaolongTan I’ve set this one up with ELBs, Nginx, or HAProxy.

@jackzampolin Thank you. :slight_smile:
