Can someone explain me what those haproxy directives mean?

Bartosz Dzikuc asked:

I cannot find an easy answer for what “inter xs fall x rise x” directives mean.

My answer:


These are explained in the HAProxy ALOHA documentation:

inter parameter sets the interval between two consecutive health checks. If not specified, the default value is 2s.
rise <count>: number of consecutive valid health checks before considering the server as UP. Default value is 2
fall: number of consecutive invalid health checks before considering the server as DOWN. Default value is 3
