I'm about to start a project to configure my web environment using 4
servers. One is planned to be the firewall / load balancer, two will
be apache frontends, and one will be the mySQL DB server. I'd like to
configure the firewall box to be a load balancer for the web traffic,
but I can't quite decide how to go about it. I've looked over some of
the stuff at linuxvirtualserver.org, but I was planning on using
RedHat, and it seems that RH does LVS different than the way that
lvs.org does it. Should I be using Piranha for what I want it to do?
Or is LVS the 'real' way to go? Or maybe I should just do DNS round
robin and do my 'load balancing' that way? Any pointers / links /
howtos are much appreciated.
