Subject: transparent client-side failover for LWP::UserAgent
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 577b
IO::Socket::INET provides a nice mechanism for trying to open a socket to successive multiple DNS A record entries in event of socket open failure, using the 'MultiHomed' key in the constructor LWP::UserAgent should expose this (and/or a general mechanism to pass IO::Socket::INET options in) At the moment, I can achieve this by @LWP::Protocol::http::EXTRA_SOCK_OPTS = ('MultiHomed'=>1); but surely it could be part of the UserAgent constructor (like timeout). This kind of client-side behaviour is pretty standard for GUI browsers. anyway, just part of the wishlist.
