A reverse HTTP proxy that duplicates requests.
You may have production servers running, but you need to upgrade to a new system. You want to run A/B test on both old and new systems to confirm the new system can handle the production load, and want to see whether the new system can run in shadow mode continuously without any issue.
teeproxy is a reverse HTTP proxy. For each incoming request, it clones the request into 2 requests, forwards them to 2 servers. The results from server A are returned as usual, but the results from server B are ignored.
teeproxy handles GET, POST, and all other http methods.
./teeproxy -l :8888 -a [http(s)://]localhost:9000 -b [http(s)://]localhost:9001 [-b [http(s)://]localhost:9002]
-lspecifies the listening port.
-bare meant for system A and systems B. The B systems can be taken down or started up without causing any issue to the teeproxy.
It's also possible to configure the timeout to both systems
-a.timeout int: timeout in milliseconds for production traffic (default
-b.timeout int: timeout in milliseconds for alternate site traffic (default
Optionally rewrite host value in the http request header.
-a.rewrite bool: rewrite for production traffic (default
-b.rewrite bool: rewrite for alternate site traffic (default
-p float64: only send a percentage of requests. The value is float64 for more precise control. (default
-key.file string: a TLS private key file. (default
-cert.file string: a TLS certificate file. (default
It's possible to write
Forwardedheader (RFC 7239) so that the production and alternate backends know about the clients:
-forward-client-ip(default is false)
By default, teeproxy tries to reuse connections. This can be turned off, if the endpoints do not support this.
-close-connections(default is false)
