Consul Client Load Balancer for Go Demo

Selects a SRV record answer according to specified load balancer algorithm, then resolves its A record to an ip, and returns an Address structure:

type Address struct {
	Address string
	Port    uint16

srvName := "my-svc.service.consul"
c := clb.NewClb("", "8600", clb.RoundRobin)
address, err := c.GetAddress(srvName)
if err != nil {

fmt.Printf("%s", address.String())
// Output:


tests are run against some fixture dns entries I set up on (dig SRV).
