Apologies in advance if this has been asked before.
Our deployment is running into an issue that seems to prevent normal load-balancing measures from working. I've seen mostly examples (here & google) with either Docker or Zeo deployments but we're using neither.
Our setup is backend with 8 clients, ZODB is in RelStorage with a pooler handling the connections. Nginx is our load balancer and webserver. Volto is running in seamless mode as found over in the training
In order for our Volto to behave properly though (especially with files, downloads, and images) we've had to use a .env file with settings like:
If we don't include the internal API path as I said downloads, images, and files don't seem to work. The problem though is that even though we have upstream clients listed in our Nginx conf like:
That one internal API path listening (220.127.116.11:8081) becomes the bottleneck.
I supposed I could toss pound/HAproxy/ or something else but I'd rather not add or have to learn yet another tool. Any ideas on how we can resolve this issue? Any thoughts, suggestions, etc are appreciated.
