Well as far as I understood the pdf one of the biggest difference is that Maglev is a distributed system where the consistent hash is for local system.
What I think is if consistent hash uses the peers table for balancing it could be similar to Maglev, but I'm not a algo expert, just an Idea. I don't know if it's have any benefits for haproxy, I have seen this algo on envoy site and wanted to know what the experts here means about it :-) https://www.envoyproxy.io/docs/envoy/latest/intro/arch_overview/load_balancing/load_balancers Regards Aleks -------- Ursprüngliche Nachricht -------- Von: Aaron West <aa...@loadbalancer.org> Gesendet: 28.
