NAME ^

Perlbal::Manual::Selector - Configuring Perlbal as a virtual service that maps onto other services

VERSION

Perlbal 1.78.

DESCRIPTION

How to configure a Perlbal selector service.

READ ME FIRST

Please read Perlbal::Manual::Configuration first for a better explanation on how to configure Perlbal. This document will make much more sense after reading that.

Configuring Perlbal as a Selector

The selector role allows you to create a service that selects to which other service a request should be sent to.

Here's an example of how to do that with the help of Perlbal::Plugin::VHosts:

    LOAD vhosts

    CREATE SERVICE selector_service
      SET listen         = 0.0.0.0:80
      SET role           = selector
      SET plugins        = vhosts

      VHOST *.site1.com  = service1
      VHOST *.site2.com  = service2
    ENABLE selector_service

In this case, requests to both site1 and site2 are received by selector_service, which then sends requests for site1 to service1 and requests for site2 to service2.

Depending on your needs, you may want to use an existing plugin (e.g., Perlbal::Plugin::Vhosts, Perlbal::Plugin::VPaths) or create your own (see selector under Perlbal::Manual::Plugins).
