Re: TCP Router VS NoRouter

Mike Youngstrom <youngm@...>

Hi Owais,

What are you referring to when you say you're concerned about the LTM
becoming a Monolith? Too much functionality in one component? Too much of
the system depending on one component?


Hopefully it's ok to discuss NoRouter here even though it isn't an official
CF project. Let us know if it is not.

The "norouter", while interesting, isn't the official CF project approach
to HTTP traffic routing. The TCP router is being built to support TCP
routing as a general solution, with the goal of it becoming an official
part of the CF release when ready.

I attended sessions on both TCP Router (Cloud Foundry and IOT protocol

Foundry without the Gorouter by Mike Heath).

I just wanted to start a discussion on the pros and cons of each

As personal opinion I think NoRouter is a simpler approach and can
definitely be made to support IOT protocols. The main drawback I see with
the NoRouter is the danger of the LTM becoming a Monolith.

Any suggestions\ideas?
