- What is the nature and description of the request?
Similar to the new "haproxy.router.openshift.io/pod-concurrent-connections" annotation, it would be useful to be able to configure individual values for the "connect timeout" HAproxy-option per route. Currently, it's only possible to configure this on a "router" scope using ROUTER_DEFAULT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT - however, I don't want to change the value for all routes, just for select ones.
- Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
Our developers have migrated an old application to openshift, that is single-threaded, parallelization is achieved through pod replication. With the newly introduced "pod-concurrent-connections" annotation it's now possible to limit the connections to "maximum 1 per pod at any time". If however for N pods there are N+1 incoming connections, the remaining connection will be 503'ed after 5seconds instead of staying in the queue until there's a free connection slot available.
- How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
Being able to set a "timeout connect" value per-route (instead of only per-router)
- Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
With the introduction of OpenShift 4, Red Hat has delivered or roadmapped a substantial number of features based on feedback by our customers. Many of the enhancements encompass specific RFEs which have been requested, or deliver a comparable solution to a customer problem, rendering an RFE redundant.
This bz (RFE) has been identified as a feature request not yet planned or scheduled for an OpenShift release and is being closed.
If this feature is still an active request that needs to be tracked, Red Hat Support can assist in filing a request in the new JIRA RFE system, as well as provide you with updates as the RFE progress within our planning processes. Please open a new support case: https://access.redhat.com/support/cases/#/case/new

As the new Jira RFE system is not yet public, Red Hat Support can help answer your questions about your RFEs via the same support case system.
