How to get Loadbalancer Health Checks to work with externalTrafficPolicy: Local
I am trying to set up a Loadbalancer/Nginx-ingress. Everything works good so far.
But there is one Problem. Following some tutorials and hints on DO a recommended setting for the loadbalancer is
externalTrafficPolicy: Local. With this set the DO-Loadbalancer fails Health-Checks.
What I researched so far is when I switch to
Cluster (health checks work then), I will loose the client IP and maybe get an additional hop inside the cluster and also the LB maybe forwards traffic to a node with less or no pods, but the ingress will route correctly.
With my current setup everything works quite good and I also have the forwarded headers with the correct IP but I wonder if setting externalTraffic to cluster will impact performance and scaling.
Any hints on this would be great, even if the answer is that it is currently not possible :)
