Ultra Monkey provides aditional and updated packages for Debian. The easiest way to obtain these packages is using apt-get. To do this add the following lines to the top of the /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb http://www.ultramonkey.org/download/3/ sarge main
deb-src http://www.ultramonkey.org/download/3 sarge main
And then running apt-get update to obtain the package lists. Note that the deb-src line is optional and is only used if you wish to download the source packages for Ultra Monkey. If you do not wish to use apt-get, then you can obtain the packages directly from the download directory.
Previous releases of Ultra Monkey required an updated kernel. However, the 2.4.27 kernel for Sarge provides all of the capabilities that are required for Ultra Monkey, so a customised kernel is no longer required.
If you wish to build your own kernel then please be advised that IPVS needs to be built into the kernel or provided as kernel modules on hosts that will run as Linux Directors.
Ultra Monkey comes with a number of additional packages.
These packages are only required on the Linux Directors or hosts that will run heartbeat. They can be obtained using apt-get using the following command or from the download directory.
apt-get install ultramonkey
During the instalation of the ipvsadm package you may be asked to configure /etc/ipvsadm.rules. You should select <No> as this conflicts with the way that Ultra Monkey configures ipvsadm.
During the instalation of the ipvsadm package you may be also asked to configure the IPVS synchronisation daemon. It is recommended thhat you select none as configuration of the synchronisation daemon is not covered in the Ultra Monkey documentation and in some cases conflicts with the way that conflicts with the way that Ultra Monkey runs LVS.
You are ready to start configuring your Ultra Monkey service. For details of sample configurations please see the topologies section.
