global settings configure parameters that apply to all servers running HAProxy. A typical
global section may look like the following:
log 127.0.0.1 local2
In the above configuration, the administrator has configured the service to
log all entries to the local
syslog server. By default, this could be
/var/log/syslog or some user-designated location.
maxconn parameter specifies the maximum number of concurrent connections for the service. By default, the maximum is 2000.
group parameters specifies the user name and group name for which the
haproxy process belongs.
daemon parameter specifies that
haproxy run as a background process.
