LVS Ubuntu


This page describes how I set up LVS load balancing using IPVS in LVS-DR mode. I wanted to test the viability of LVS to load balance VMware's VDM broker. I decided to set up a single director to start with, fronting two tiny HTTP servers serving simple pages. Here's the diagram:

VMware Player and Server

Proprietary but "free of charge" (NOT floss) virtualisation software from VMware

(If you want a floss virtualiser try VirtualBox instead)


VMware Player 3.x

Try VMware player FIRST ! Its a simple "one-click" .BUNDLE install on almost any distro variant !

Verdsion 2.x works on PIIIs and Version 3 requires a P4 with PAE but now lets you create VMs from scratch as well as running pre-built ones !
