About server redundancy for sidecar


(Charles Deng) #1

Hello, I noticed that there only one URL can be configured with server_url for sidecar. is it ok to using DNS resolve to multiple IP addresses just for offering server_url redundancy for sidecar ?

if you have multiple Graylog Server you might already have a LB that is balacing the Interface - why not just use that LB API for that?

Hi Jan,

I was not asking for loadbalancing the traffic from sidecar, but want to keep the sidecar can always contact the centeralized configuration management server in a kind of single point failure of a server. although the collector’s configuration usually done and not touched, but maybe we want to see those collectors’ running normally and can easy to see the problem is due to the LBs or due to collectors themselves/networks from collectors to LBs.
