    express-sticky-cluster

    Sticky session balancer based on a cluster and node-http-proxy modules, with express and socket.io support.

    Designed for using like express-cluster.

    No memory leaks since version 1.0.0!

    NPM

    How it works

    Launches multiple worker processes through cluster, using bunch of ports. One worker process becomes also 'http-proxy', serving as sticky session balancer.

    Establishes sticky round-robin balancer for any kind of http(s) frameworks. Not only, but including socket.io and express. Client will always connect to same worker process sticked with customizable hash function. For example, socket.io multi-stage authorization will work as expected.

    Unused sessions stickers will be deleted after some time, so module does not have memory leaks.

    Installation

    npm install express-sticky-cluster [--save]

    Usage example

    Express 4 example with socket.io and passport.js usage.
