Description

I suggest to add two new settings in system_advanced_misc.php for a better relayd control. (cf screenshot attached)

The goal is to use the directive "timeout" and "interval" in relayd.conf.

Patch is ready, I can commit in mainline for upcoming 2.1 if nobody has any objection.

That is ambiguous as to whether that works with inbound or outbound load balancing. The sticky option works for both in and out, gateway switching is outbound only, and those two new options are for inbound only. Seems a bit odd to have them there though, would be better to have a "global" options tab for relayd if they really are global, or per-vs or per-pool option if that makes more sense.

You are right, it is confusing.

According to relayd man page, these parameters can be applied globally and for each redirection. However, when using a "interval" in a specific redirection, the value should be a multiple of the global interval value (if not, relayd does not stat)

So to be safe in a first time, I propose a new tab with global parameters only, cf screenshot.

Im am ecstatic you are adding these much needed settings to the load balancer.

When we deployed our pfsense, we had to make 3 customizations to get the load balancer to work correctly,

1. interval
2. timeout
3. prefork

if you can add prefork to the advanced options then i can finally revert back to the stock config generators!

with the prefork set to default (5) our load balancer times out with many hosts, we have ours set at 30.
