Accepted Answer

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.
