noobish, but anyhow am throwing it up.
Questions are good. :)
1. HAProxy load balances the requests among the various app servers,
but the configuration on which HAProxy runs, are those dynamically
changing, or they are manually updated through some bash scripts,
whenever there is a need to ?
They are managed by ansible. They don't change often.
If some server is down or unreachable, haproxy just stops sending any
traffic to it and users never notice.
2. Also before making the choices of HAProxy, Apache and Varnish
there any discussions related to why the choice is being made. Are
those discussion docs public ?
Not that I know of, but this setup was made... 10 years ago?
It's served us pretty well, and nothing more compelling has shown up
