Linux Virtual Server Tutorial

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 100s of thousands of simultaneous connections. The purpose of this tutorial is to 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.
