    Name        : haproxy
    Product     : Fedora 29

    Summary     : HAProxy reverse proxy for high availability environments
    Description :
    HAProxy is a TCP/HTTP reverse proxy which is particularly suited for high
    availability environments. Indeed, it can:
     - route HTTP requests depending on statically assigned cookies
     - spread load among several servers while assuring server persistence
       through the use of HTTP cookies
     - switch to backup servers in the event a main one fails
     - accept connections to special ports dedicated to service monitoring
     - stop accepting connections without breaking existing ones
     - add, modify, and delete HTTP headers in both directions
     - block requests matching particular patterns
     - report detailed status to authenticated users from a URI
       intercepted from the application
