LVS/Piranha and Direct Routing example

Since this is a corporate environment we looked to a RedHat solution first, so we bough the RedHat Cluster Suite, which includes Piranha. I suppose if I knew more before I started this I might have tried Ultra Monkey first, or perhaps straight LVS code, but live and learn. I'm not even sure those would have been acceptable to my managers. They are getting pressure from our network services people that we should just buy a Cisco load balancer and mind our own business. :)

why stick to Piranha?  support?  then you need to file an enhancement
request with Red Hat (good luck :).  I'm actually a bit surprised that
WS includes Piranha at all, I can't find it in our channels (but I
didn't look very hard.)

we use Keepalived on WS 3.0, it works fine and is pretty easy to set up,
but it's without commercial support.  you can buy that from others if
you need it.
