HAProxy in VPS OVH

Discussion in 'Hosting Advice' started by Minemarc98, May 20, 2016.

  1. I bought a VPS OVH (Canada) to install a HAProxy to balance the load from 3 BungeeCords on my server, the problem is that I have set my dedicated server and runs smoothly, I created a OpenVZ VPS I've tried and It runs smoothly, but in the KVM VPS OVH does not work.

    What I can do?
  2. I think that the kernel OVH uses doesn't allow these things. Try changing it.
  3. Depends which kernel that you use because usually the new 2016 are coming with linux 3 kernel (ovh vps's)
  4. Yes, but as I can make it work with VPS 2016?
  5. You should if you kernel supports it but can you post the output of uname -a ?
  6. [[email protected] ~]# uname -a
    Linux vps81430.vps.ovh.ca 3.10.0-327.18.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 12 11:03:55 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

  7. Centos 7 64 bit right?

    Why use haproxy to load balance, when you can just use your DNS?

    Just create multiple A records.

    mc.your.server ->
    mc.your.server ->
    mc.your.server ->

    It's what most large scale networks do.
    i.e: https://whatsmydns.net/#A/mc.hypixel.net
  9. To hide the IP addresses of Bungee Cords (Since they have no protection AntiDDos)

    Who is your host currently? I'm sure they'll have DDoS protection.
    Plus if you're needing >1 BungeeCord (400+ players), I'm sure you can afford some DDoS protection?
  11. I am using Datashack.
