Hi to all,

I'm using haproxy to serve our web infrastructure, it serves about 500/600 concurrency connection, with some peak to 1000/1200 concurrency connection.
All work great, and performance are also so good, but sometimes haproxy stop to serve http traffic (mode http),instead other kind of traffic continues to work (mode tcp).

I'm using haproxy 1.3.18, i attach configuration file. Kernel on machine is 2.6.26-2-686 on debian 5.0

Stops are sudden, and i'm unable to replicate it. When it happens haproxy daemon is still up, and continue to serve other kind of service (mode tcp), also stats stop to work.

Any help ?

Best Regards
Luca Pimpolari
