There's a older question, but I haven't seen any traction on this. In Kilo, what's the best practice for setting up a LBaaS (HAProxy) HTTPS + HTTP load balancer? I would like to point a single VIP at one load balancer, that supports either HTTPS termination or HTTPS pass through and redirects all inbound HTTP requests for obvious reasons. After fighting with the LBaaS HAProxy implementation for several hours, there seems to be no viable way to accomplish this?

Am I going about this the wrong way? Is there a more proper method for accomplishing this? My only other idea is to have a dedicated "LB" instance that runs HAProxy, or some other load balancing application, and handles the configuration manually. I really want to be able to utilize neutron's api to manage the pool.
