Load Balancing

  1. Only one loadbalancer for http traffic and https traffic independently to the same backend

    I would like to create one HTTP(S) loadbalancer with one backend (instance group) with port 80 behing forward to port 80 on the backend and port 443 behing forward to port 443 on the backend.

    At the moment we have to create 2 seperate loadbalancers with the same external IP to achieve this.

  2. Priority in URL Maps

    Since all backends are treated equally, we cannot have a "backup website" in case the backends are overwhelmed. Having priority in the URL Maps would allow us to direct traffic to high priority backend service in normal cases and when they are overwhelmed, we can direct the remaining to some other backend (e.g. bucket containing simple page explaining the website is overloaded.).

  3. Respect "X-Forwarded-Proto" header from Cloud Flare / other frontends

    Cloud Flare correctly sets the "X-Forwarded-Proto" to "https" when using their "flexible" option (https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200170986-How-does-Cloudflare-handle-HTTP-Request-headers-) - this is the same as if we used the GCP load balancer directly to handle HTTPS and proxy via HTTP to our backends.

    I need my backend services, which listen on HTTP, to understand that the request came from a client using HTTPS - but Google Cloud load balancer is overwriting the X-Forward-Proto header to "http", even though the client is actually using HTTPS from our Cloud Flare frontend.

    This is the whole point of the "X-Forwarded-Proto" header, so I'm not sure why…

  4. Improve your Load Balancer Interface. It is confusing. There is no clarity and separation of UI for Network and HTTP(S) Load Balancer

    Improve your Load Balancer Interface. It is confusing. There is no clarity and separation of UI for Network and HTTP(S) Load Balancer.
    Users always get confused when you are creating a Load Balancer.

  6. Internal Load Balancer support UDP session affinity

    Internal load balancer doesn't support session affinity when using UDP.
    But Load Balancer does.

  7. Your Geo-IP data is not accurate.

    Hi Google Cloud, regarding your load balance geo-ip feature(https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/load-balancing/http/backend-service#user-defined-request-headers …), we found it's not accurate and we would like to share our findings, may I have a contact (email)so I can send our findings?

  8. Allow multiple health checks on an ILB

    An ILB can provide load balancing on multiple TCP ports. But, when you associate a health check to ILB, you can create only 1 health check on only 1 TCP port. If backend servers are listening on multiple TCP ports, it adds value to provide health check for all those ports

  12. Load balancer fault is not informative

    Load balancer has a heartbeat mechanism to moniter the linked instances. In some cases the LB marks an instance as unhealthy but does not provide the reason for marking it as unhealthy. from instance perspective the HB is fine, since port mirroring is not available there is no clue why the LB marks an instance as unhealthy.
