I need to use consul only for service discovery, health checking, alerts etc. In which mode should I host consul.
Currently, 2 nodes are enough for me to host consul and as per load, I will increase the count in future.
We are already using a 8 node cluster of hashicorp vault and consul where we’ve hosted a combination of consul server and client. But, we followed this approach because we have used consul server as backend storage for vault.
How to manage in this use case where the sole purpose of using consul is the management of other services. If possible, please share the consul configuration scripts as well.
Thank you. Take care.
