FAQ
Hi all -
Impala's documentation states that "For clusters running production
workloads, you might load-balance between the nodes by submitting each
query to a different Impala daemon in round-robin style, using the JDBC or
ODBC interfaces."

Has any of you successfully implemented such a load balancer?

I'm asking this because most of our Impala queries are run using Hue, and
Hue needs to be configured to connect to a specific Impala daemon. We worry
that this daemon may become over-loaded as more and more users concurrently
run queries.

Thanks!
Noam

    Hi Noam,

    Have you tried using HA Proxy as the load balancer? We've document how to
    config it:
