I was able to integrate HAProxy in my Kilo production 3 node setup(controller+network+compute) and see the TCP/HTTP traffic being load balanced across the nodes through VIP.

If I am right, HAProxy terminates the TCP flow in VIP and re-transmit the packets to destination node. The same thing happens for the node to send response to client.

For some performance reasons I do not want this termination to happen and I just want the load balancer agent to route the traffic without being terminated by LB director? Is there any other openstack load balancer plugin supporting the requirement? Will LVS help? Please suggest. If yes, please share the instructions to integrate it too.
