#2499 RFE: Support multiple IP addresses resolved from a single host name
Opened 5 years ago by jhrozek. Modified 10 months ago

For some cases, it might be prudent to support load balancing over all addresses a host name resolves to. Currently we only pick the first one.

To mitigate long timeouts, a per-hostname timeout could be added.

The failover code would need to be extended to support multiple addresses per hostname. Currently each hostname (except for srv) is a single 'server' in failover terms. We might need to treat all servers similar to srv servers to expand them, even if into a single server.
