The Linux Virtual Server Project (LVS) allows load balancing of networked
services such as web and mail servers using Layer 4 Switching. It is
extremely fast and allows such services to be scaled to service 10s or
of thousands of simultaneous connections. The purpose of the tutorial is
demonstrate how to use various features of LVS to load balance internet
services. And how this can be made highly available using tools such as
such as heartbeat and keepalived. It will also cover more advanced topics
which have been the subject of recent development including maintaining
active connections in a highly available environment and using active
feedback to better distribute load.
