Thruk Cluster


I’ve been thinking about setting up a cluster with 2 nodes. Has anyone done a static or with a NGINX LB based cluster and want to share the experience with pros and cons?


I’ve done that for customers and there are also 2 test scenarios in thruks sources itself based on haproxy and docker:


  • scaling
  • high availability


  • more complexity

Don’t underestimate the additional complexity. It usually only makes sense for high traffic top umbrella setups. Otherwise it does not make sense to setup a thruk cluster but everything else still runs single as node, like Naemon, Grafana, Influxdb or whatever you use.

Thank you for sharing the information Sven!

I agree.
