HAProxy Pros

JT
System Administrator at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
The most valuable thing for me is TCP/IP Layer 4 stuff you can do with HAProxy. You can go down to the protocol level and make decisions on something.

I can't speak to all of the HAProxy features because we don't use them all, but load balancing is very good.

HAProxy Cons

JT
System Administrator at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
Sometimes it's challenging to get through the log, and you need a log to understand what is going on. It isn't easy to map the logging with the documentation, and every time I read the log, I have to pull out the documentation to understand what I'm reading.

While troubleshooting, we are having some difficulties. There are no issues when it is running; it is stable and very good; however, if there is a troubleshooting issue or an incident occurs, we will have issues because this is open-source.

The reconfigurability in terms of the tooling could be improved and maybe an editor plugin can be added.

There is no standardized document available. So, any individual has to work from scratch to work it out. If some standard deployment details are available, it would be helpful for people while deploying it. There should be more documentation on the standard deployment.
