The global settings configure parameters that apply to all servers running HAProxy. A typical global section may look like the following:

    log local2
    maxconn 4000
    user haproxy
    group haproxy
In the above configuration, the administrator has configured the service to log all entries to the local syslog server. By default, this could be /var/log/syslog or some user-designated location.
The maxconn parameter specifies the maximum number of concurrent connections for the service. By default, the maximum is 2000.
The user and group parameters specifies the user name and group name for which the haproxy process belongs.
Finally, the daemon parameter specifies that haproxy run as a background process.
