What is HAProxy?

HAProxy is an open-source load balancer and proxy server known for its high-performance capabilities. It plays a vital role in efficiently distributing incoming network traffic across multiple servers or backend services. With HAProxy, organizations can achieve high availability, scalability, and reliability for their web applications and services.

HAProxy excels at load balancing by intelligently routing requests to the most suitable backend servers based on various algorithms like round-robin, least connections, or custom load balancing rules. It offers advanced features such as session persistence, SSL/TLS termination, and health checks, allowing IT teams to optimize traffic distribution and ensure seamless application delivery.

As a versatile proxy server, HAProxy supports multiple protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, TCP and UDP. This flexibility makes it a valuable tool for managing different types of traffic. Additionally, HAProxy provides advanced traffic management capabilities like request rewriting, content switching, and rate limiting, empowering IT teams to optimize performance and enforce security policies.

How to monitor HAProxy?

ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor HAProxy requiring only the installation of a ServicePilot Agent along with minimal configuration on the target server. A resource of the appmon-HAProxy package then needs to be added via the ServicePilot web interface.

The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Bytes Volume
  • HTTP Statistics
  • Connections
  • Responses and Errors

How to install a haproxy resource?

  1. Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
  2. Add a new haproxy resource via the web interface (/prmviews or /prmresources) or via API (/prmpackages page), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.

Details of the haproxy package are located in the /prmpackages page of the software.


ServicePilot enables you to deliver IT services faster and more securely with automated discovery and advanced monitoring features.

By correlating the technology HAPROXY with APM and infrastructure monitoring, ServicePilot is able to provide a more comprehensive view of an organization's IT environment.

This allows IT teams to quickly identify and diagnose issues that may be impacting application performance, and take corrective action before end-users are affected.
