Hi there, I'm having a bit of a problem with haproxy. We've got two haproxy servers pointing at 4 windows web servers. Now mostly they work fine but when the client reloads their application they insist on doing all four servers simultaneuously. I know, but we've discussed it and that's the way they're doing it. Now when they reload the application, sometimes they get errors that the site isn't there (because it isn't) anyway, I'm trying to figure out how to get haproxy to hold on and keep trying until it gets a valid server . So someone browsing the site will experience a wait for a new page but they won't get an error message. Now it takes about 15 seconds for the application to reload so I thought a timeout time of 90 seconds would be sufficient but it's not, also it's set to retry 30 times and that's hot helping either.
