Load balancer on nginx : how to monitoring backend?

Hello everyone,

I use nginx 1.8.0 on debian (official nginx package with nginx repo)

I created a reverse proxy SSL cluster with load balancing. Everything
works fine.


upstream myapp {
server srv1;
server srv2;
}


location ~ ^/myapp {
rewrite ^/(.*) /$1 break;
proxy_pass http://myapp;
}

However I wish to monitor the status of the backend. How can I do ?

Thank you.

You may find the lua-resty-upstream-healthcheck library helpful:

https://github.com/openresty/lua-resty-upstream-healthcheck

But it’s much easier to install via the OpenResty bundle though:

Monitoring of backend seems to be possible with NGINX PLUS. Can you
confirm ?

Thank you

Alexande.

Hello, thank you I’ll test.

It is not possible to test the nginx upstream directly ?

Thank you

OK, I can not use a load balancer in production without backend
monitoring. I will use LVS.

just for my curiosity why can’t buying n+, for production!?

Does anyone know if the author still maintains
nginx_upstream_check_module?
I see only a handful of commits in the past year and they all look like
contributed changes.

First I do not know the price of nginx plus. Moreover I do not think
it’s a good idea to use a reverse proxy TLS and load balancing on the
same machine when there is high web traffic. I preferred to separate
processes. Nginx for reverse proxy TLS and LVS + Varnish for load
balancing and cache.

Hello!

If you are in development, you can try this module
https://github.com/yaoweibin/nginx_upstream_check_module. But, not
recommended if use on production, better use n+.
