‘an algorithm that combined consistent hashing with an upper limit on any one server’s load, relative to the average load of the whole pool.’ Lovely blog post from Vimeo’s eng blog on a new variation on consistent hashing — incorporating a concept of overload-avoidance — and adding it to HAProxy and using it in production in Vimeo.
