Willy, thanks. 
May be it makes sense to have this list published somewhere at haproxy 
homepage, just to eliminate further questions like this one ? :) 

PS: and, one more note: what I see in this mailing list is the much 
better support than I getting from our load balancer vendor. 
Thanks once more :)

We use haproxy to handle web traffic for peruvian news sites:
elcomercio.pe, peru21.pe, etc. Around 2k session rate in peak hours.
Haproxy is the most reliable part of our architecture.

 Hi!
 
 Sorry that I'm starting my subscription with such a silly question,
 but is there any kind of list of projects/sites using haproxy as
 load balancer ? (offline responses are welcome too) 
 
 Why I need it - one of our web-services performs much better using 
 haproxy maxconn/queue feature (it protects database from spikes), 
 but to implement it on production I need to get approval from management. 
 And management says No, unless it's confirmed that this software is 
 really used widely, and, as haproxy operates transparently it use is 
 not shown in netcraft web server survey like in case of nginx..

That's something very common. Haproxy was first introduced at many
places as a quick fix for a non-responding service, and finally
adopted once the the service responded again and people understood
the use of such a component. This common experience was even described
here :

  
http://www.ghostwheel.com/merlin/Personal/notes/2007/03/25/200-terabytes-served-in-81-days-247tb-per-day/

There are a lot of sites currently running it, but most of them will
never tell it. A few sites transparently report using it [1] :
stackoverflow, whos.amung.us, reddit, ravelry, imgur, twitter, fedora,
ubuntu, transfer.ro.

But in fact there are a lot of other ones I'm aware of that don't
advertise it. Some companies in the finance domain have deployed
thousands of instances. Several photos and videos sites use it at
data rates around the gigabit. A big file sharing site uses it at
10 Gbps 24*7. A few sites report processing more than one billion
requests a day through it (some being large known ads sites BTW).
At least one site litteraly reports hundreds of thousands of
concurrent connections!

And obviously there are all the ones we don't know about. Sometimes
I see an URL of a stats page in the referrer of haproxy's site logs,
indicating some use, but obviously I won't report them !

As a hint, you can also look at the domain some of the list members
are posting from ;-)

Cheers,
Willy
