How to enable Metrics/Stats Page in HAProxy

Parsing the logs with HALog isn’t the only way to get metrics out of HAProxy. The HAProxy Stats Page can be enabled by adding the stats enable directive to a frontend or listen section. It displays live statistics of your servers. The follow listen section starts the Stats page listening on port 8404:

frontend stats
    bind *:8404
    stats enable
    stats uri /stats
    stats refresh 10s

Put the configuration above in the HAProxy configuration file and then restart the HAProxy service and then go to the following URL
