Why an extra gear is seen in haproxy status as down/brown state.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I got a problem with one of my gears. For some reason, when I scale up my application the second gear is always in "brown color" and switch to "green" intermittently. And doesn't work well.

I tried to scale down my application to one gear, and then scale up another time. But the second gear is always having problem.

At this time, I only have 1 gear in production, but when I enter the haproxy link, I'm still watching the "zombie" gear. How to resolve this issue.
