We are currently using haproxy in round-robin mode distribute load across some of our application servers. The basic configuration looks like:

listen  dev
    balance roundrobin
    server  dev1 dev1:5984 check
    server  dev2 dev2:5984 check
    server  dev3 dev3:5984 check

I'm performing some performance testing and wondering, does haproxy cache something in this configuration or just redirect the requests?

Nope, HAproxy does not cache anything.
