Linux Virtual Server [Jun. 4th, 2001|02:44 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Been reading up on the LVS project ... it's a lot more mature than it was last time I checked. I'll have to continue reading after Friday.

I should study.

Local v Wide Area DNS Ballancing

Thanks Brad, and yes, you very much got the point.

It can actualy do some cool stuff even in the local area environment as well. It starts to have scaling problems over 12 servers or so, limitation of UDP packets.

I always have leaned towards free tools ...

Re: Local v Wide Area DNS Ballancing

Ever hear of mod_backhand? It's free, and can load balance evenly across machines with widely different speeds, and uses a UDP-based information protocol.

Err, also... Can DNS round-robin give us control over our systems like the transparent paid members server we have?
