Father, husband, geek.

I love building things online. I've built Eachday, GrowShow, Contentfree, and many others.

I enjoy being a part of the open source community and contribute (mainly to the Ruby community). I've created gems like Blackbook and is_it_mobile.

I love music. My band, The Republic, is touring this fall.

comment Jenkins CI - Cannot allocate memory
Adding a swapfile is easy and straight-forward. For Ubuntu 12.04 (though it should apply largely to Linux in general), this article was dead simple: digitalocean.com/community/articles/…

comment EC2 Startup - How to Tell When Windows Ready?
Where did that line "Sending event windows is ready to use to everyone" come from? That's not in my logs and I would love that event!

comment How do I configure Haproxy to choose a backend based on content in the HTTP request body (not headers)?
Always fun to come across your own questions while searching for their answers… Haproxy dev is now at 1.5.x. Does anyone know if there's a way to do this with 1.5?

comment How do I configure Haproxy to choose a backend based on content in the HTTP request body (not headers)?
I wish. Some of the requests come with additional headers -- which could of course utilize -- but some just differ in their SOAP message contents. It's interesting that you can look at the request's content's length but you can't search for a string in there like you can with a header. (Looking up a header by name and searching seems like it would be more CPU intensive than a string match in the payload... though I guess that could be a function of payload length)

comment How do I configure Haproxy to choose a backend based on content in the HTTP request body (not headers)?
Thanks for the response, Kyle. I agree with you about dependencies. The scenario is that we have a third party partner (OpenMarket) that delivers MMS messages to us (in SOAP format). We have a dev cluster and a production cluster and, because of some limitations to the delivery mechanism, we receive messages for both at the same URL end point. Unfortunately, we have no control of that aspect -- so I was hoping to use something like Haproxy to do that content switching.
