Im currently running this lighty / mongrel / pound config…
– lighty (for static content)
– mongrel cluster (for rails)
Now then, i hear that 1.5 will have vastly improved proxying module on
lighty? Which would reduce the stack to the point where lighty could
replace pound as the load balencer? Effectivly making it…
– mongrel cluster
Where lighty would serve the sites to which it has in its configuration.
Proxying the ones where configured to do so.
I was interested in what people knew about the improvements in 1.5
regarding the proxying / load balencing modules and when we might see
them? As currently its a pain in the ass using pound, there are some
thing (such as re-write rules and the like) which it just cant do. Some
would say use Apache 2.2 as a the load balencer, but a) i prefer lighty,
and b) i prefer lighty! haha.
Any thoughts, just was after a frank, open discussion really, as i know
there are probally quite a few people out there running very similar
