I am creating a chat application backend and want to take into consideration the scalability.

I wanted to create a load balancer but not on the L7 layer where HTTP is located, but on the L3 layer where IP network is located to direct connections to the specific servers where I can then make TCP.

Is net.ListenIP the correct function to use to listen to the packets on the IP layer?

Is it the same as the higher Listen("tcp") for example? Is it the right method that I need to implement the load balancer?

Is there a reference to how the packet is structured so I am able get out from it the source and destination IPs to forward them?

If not tell me which function to use to listen on the L3 network layer to balance the loads to other servers.

我想创建一个负载均衡器,但不是在HTTP所在的L7层上,而是在IP网络所在的L3层上创建一个负载平衡器,以将连接定向到特定的服务器,然后我就可以创建 TCP

net.ListenIP 用于侦听IP层上数据包的正确功能?

与更高的 Listen( 例如“ tcp”) ? 是实现负载均衡器所需的正确方法吗?

    After reading the Docs, yes this function will help you receive IP Packets.

    ListenIP acts like ListenPacket for IP networks.

    ListenIP is similar to ListenPacket("tcp") but for IP packets.

    As for the structure of IP packets, and working with them, the net package doesn't seem to have that.

    There's another package gopacket which looks like it will be able to help you read and modify packets from any layer.

    In gopacket there is a Packet type, which allows working with the network layer.

    Packet.NetworkLayer().LayerContent() and Packet.NetworkLayer().LayerPayload() will each return byte[] which you can interpret by the expected structure of an IP packet.

    Note: Now that I've written this whole thing I have to imagine somebody out there has written a nice overlay/wrapper to make this easier. This is just the result of me Googling for 10 minutes. Maybe somebody else will answer with a better tool/method
