@dfee at this time, pushpin isn't intended to be a substitute for a load balancer. you should probably keep using nginx for that functionality
that said, pushpin does have reasonably expressive routing rules and you can even specify multiple targets for a rule. perhaps this could evolve to replace common load balancer features
for Fanout Cloud, we use haproxy for load balancing as well as ssl termination

Thanks again for quick reply, I´ll investigate more into using the SSE client. At the moment i´m playing around with zurl/webhooks. Its working great with python. However using java i get into a problem with the ipc protocol. I tried to change the zurl.conf configuration from something like ipc://usr/local/var/run/pushpin/pushpin-zurl-in to tcp://localhost:10001. It seems like the zurl.conf file is overwritten when i start pushpin. Googling the problem reveals that java does not support "unix domain socket". So it is a way to change the config in zurl.conf?

@larshelg try editing zurl.conf.template and internal.conf to match (both files should be under /usr/local/lib/pushpin or such)
also for bind addresses you may need to put the actual IP (e.g. tcp:// I don't think zmq libraries resolve hostnames when binding, since the result may be ambiguous
hostnames are fine on the connect side though

I'm trying to filter traffic that's passed through pushpin, and traffic that hasn't. specifically, websocket traffic. does pushpin set specific headers on a request?

you could look for Content-Type of application/websocket-events
if you want all pushpin traffic, you could look for Grip-Sig
