I have a load balancer and couple of droplets inside of it . I have some containers in my network for security analyze. I want to request mirror incoming HTTP traffic like port 80-> to port 3131 for analyze . I know how to do this in web servers like nginx. But not sure is it avalaible in load balancers.

Currently it isn’t possible to mirror traffic that comes into your load balancer setup. However, if you want to mirror HTTP traffic you can setup nginx to do so as you have already mentioned. After the load balancer forwards the traffic to your droplets with nginx you can then mirror it from there to send to your container for security analysis.
