Looking for examples on traffic shapping

We are running a 4 node Jira DC, and we would like to re-direct all REST traffic to a specific server. We use Apache as a load balancer. We have tried using "RewriteEngine" but I keep getting 401, it works when we try rest calls that don't required login.

Does anyone have any real world example of how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

This is a question for your load-balancer software, not really an Atlassian thing - all they have on it is

I've successfully followed the instructions in there, but it wasn't an F5 as you suggest you're using.

Hi, yes but I was wondering if anyone has successfully done it with Apache. 

We are not using F5 firewalls, we use linux servers with apache 2.4 installed  in them.

Thank you, I saw that and we have configured that way for Confluence. 

The configuration example that I am asking for, is for Jira datacenter

It is pretty much the same, you can dump the synchrony parts out and change the urls.

OK, we already have apache configured to work with Jira Datacenter, what I am asking here is for help on traffic shapping. 


If the reason for such approach is to make sure rest traffic does not affect other users (UI) operations, I would suggest trying another approach and use rate limiting (for rest):

If the rest traffic is not read-only each operation will still affect all other nodes (and user actions on those nodes) so the separation will not be really effective.
