Download haproxy from the interweb and install it somewhere permanent. One way to install haproxy is to use brew (`sudo brew install haproxy`). 

I have no idea how the default haproxy.cfg looks, but it will almost certainly be useless.  The one I use is as follows.  You will need to edit OPENAM_URL_1, OPENAM_URL_2, etc. etc. accordingly.  Each will need to be the full path (excluding scheme) to one of your OpenAM instances, e.g.:

Command to start haproxy is `haproxy -f haproxy.cfg`.

The following config file may give WARNING messages if you are using latest haproxy, that is because some of the directives listed below are now deprecated.
