DESCRIPTIONHow to configure a Perlbal "selector" service.
READ ME FIRSTPlease read Perlbal::Manual::Configuration first for a better explanation on how to configure Perlbal. This document will make much more sense after reading that.
Configuring Perlbal as a SelectorThe "selector" role allows you to create a service that selects to which other service a request should be sent to.
Here's an example of how to do that with the help of Perlbal::Plugin::VHosts:
LOAD vhosts CREATE SERVICE selector_service SET listen = 0.0.0.0:80 SET role = selector SET plugins = vhosts VHOST *.site1.com = service1 VHOST *.site2.com = service2 ENABLE selector_service
In this case, requests to both "site1" and "site2" are received by "selector_service", which then sends requests for "site1" to "service1" and requests for "site2" to "service2".
Depending on your needs, you may want to use an existing plugin (e.g., Perlbal::Plugin::Vhosts, Perlbal::Plugin::VPaths) or create your own (see "selector" under Perlbal::Manual::Plugins).
