Tungsten Fabric load balancing (HAProxy)¶
MOSK ensures Octavia with Tungsten Fabric integration by OpenStack Octavia Driver with Tungsten Fabric HAProxy as a back end.
The Tungsten Fabric-based MOSK deployment supports creation, update, and deletion operations with the following standard load balancing API entities:
For a load balancer creation operation, the driver supports only the
vip-network-idargument is not supported.
The Tungsten Fabric-based MOSK deployment does not support the following load balancing capabilities:
L7 load balancing capabilities, such as L7 policies, L7 rules, and others
Setting specific availability zones for load balancers and their resources
Using of the UDP protocol
Operations with Octavia quotas
Operations with Octavia flavors
The Tungsten Fabric-based MOSK deployment enables you to manage the load balancer resources by means of the OpenStack CLI or OpenStack Horizon. Do not perform any manipulations with the load balancer resources through the Tungsten Fabric web UI because in this case the changes will not be reflected on the OpenStack API side.
