The role of the load balancer is to distribute client requests across the pool of servers including rerouting requests when a member of the pool fails. LBaaS leverages agents that control the HAProxy configuration and manage the HAProxy daemon. These HAProxy based load balancers have network access to clients and to the member servers which answer client requests by requesting and receiving Neutron networks ports and IP Addresses.
