Its feature include:

  • WebAdmin GUI with real-time statistics.
  • Rewrite engine uses Apache mod_rewrite syntax.
  • High-performance page caching.
  • Gzip compression for reduced bandwidth use.
  • HTTPS up to 4x faster than Apache.
  • Supports PHP, Ruby, Python, Perl, and Java external applications.
  • Buffers requests and responses to external applications to more efficiently serve multiple connections.
  • Apache-compatible SSI support.
  • Bandwidth and connection throttling.
  • Chunked transfer encoding.
  • IPv4 and IPv6 support.
  • Load balancing.
  • WebSocket proxy support.
  • mp4 and flv streaming.
  • Easy virtual host configuration via templates.
  • Can serve as a reverse proxy to accelerate static content delivery, compress throughput, or run security.

loadcat - NGINX load balancer configurator

  •    Go

Loadcat is an Nginx configurator that allows you to use Nginx as a load balancer. The project is inspired by the various Nginx load balancing tutorial articles available online and also the existence of Linode's load balancer service NodeBalancers. So far the tool covers some of HTTP and HTTPS load balancing features, such as SSL termination, adding servers on the fly, marking them as unavailable or backup as necessary, and setting their weights to distribute load fairly. Loadcat parses a TOML encoded configuration file. In case one is not found, Loadcat will create one with same sane defaults. The location of the configuration file can be specified with the -config flag.

glb-director - GitHub Load Balancer Director and supporting tooling.

  •    C

The GitHub Load Balancer (GLB) Director is a set of components that provide a scalable set of stateless Layer 4 load balancer servers capable of line rate packet processing in bare metal datacenter environments, and is used in production to serve all traffic from GitHub's datacenters. GLB Director is designed to be used in datacenter environments where multiple servers can announce the same IP address via BGP and have network routers shard traffic amongst those servers using ECMP routing. While ECMP shards connections per-flow using consistent hashing, addition or removal of nodes will generally cause some disruption to traffic as state isn't stored for each flow. A split L4/L7 design is typically used to allow the L4 servers to redistribute these flows back to a consistent server in a flow-aware manner. GLB Director implements the L4 (director) tier of a split L4/L7 load balancer design.

thor - The WebSocket god of thunder

  •    Javascript

Thor is WebSocket benchmarking/load generator. There are a lot of benchmarking tools for HTTP servers. You've got ab, siege, wrk and more. But all these tools only work with plain ol HTTP and have no support for WebSockets - even if they did they wouldn't be suitable, as they would be testing short running HTTP requests instead of long running HTTP requests with a lot of messaging traffic. Thor fixes all of this. Thor requires Node.js to be installed on your system. If you don't have Node.js installed you can download it from http://nodejs.org or build it from the github source repository: http://github.com/joyent/node.

loadbalancer - A sticky load balancer optimized for realtime apps

  •    Javascript

LoadBalancer.js is a sticky-session TCP load balancer which is optimized to work with realtime frameworks (with support for HTTP long polling fallbacks). It captures raw TCP connections from a specified port and forwards them to various targets (defined as host and port combinations). It chooses the appropriate target based on a hash of the client's IP address.LoadBalancer.js was originally designed to work with SocketCluster (http://socketcluster.io) but it can work equally well with any other realtime framework.
