Gobetween is a load balancer written in Go.

Quick Usage[edit | edit source]

To quickly get started using Gobetween, use the docker container image. To proxy HTTP/HTTPS traffic to a local server for instance, we can create a docker container using a custom config file:

version: '3.3'
services:
  gobetween:
    image: yyyar/gobetween
    ports:
      - "80:80"
      - "443:443"
    restart: always
    volumes:
      - ./config.toml:/etc/gobetween/conf/gobetween.toml

Where the config file looks like:

[servers.https]
bind = ":443"
protocol = "tcp"
balance = "weight"

max_connections = 1000
client_idle_timeout = "10m"
backend_idle_timeout = "10m"
backend_connection_timeout = "2s"

[servers.https.discovery]
kind = "static"
static_list = [
    "192.168.248.5:443 weight=1"
]

[servers.http]
bind = ":80"
protocol = "tcp"
balance = "weight"

max_connections = 1000
client_idle_timeout = "10m"
backend_idle_timeout = "10m"
backend_connection_timeout = "2s"

[servers.http.discovery]
kind = "static"
static_list = [
    "192.168.248.5:80 weight=1"
]

Create the container using docker-compose. It should proxy traffic destined for this host to the remote 192.168.248.5 host.
