How can I reduce Packet Loss during IP failover?
I am currently working with 2 load balancing Linodes set up with IP failover. I am currently using Keepalived to handle the failover as well as HA Proxy to route traffic between the two Linodes.
Does anyone know if there is any way to improve the amount of time route convergence takes? I'm measuring about ~10-17 seconds of packet loss when the transition first occurs on my screen. Even going from FAILOVER to MASTER this loss period occurs.
Any suggestions on configuring keepalived or otherwise would be greatly appreciated?
