Let me try to picture it...
I'm horrible with ascii art... :-(
I guess we can look at it as a mini cluster with 4 servers. Servers A and B
are application servers. Servers X and Y are database servers.
X ---- Y
X and Y are redundant, replicated database servers. Both A and B would have
their database connections load-balanced between X and Y.
So I was wondering if simply running LVS on BOTH server A and B, in order to
achieve the load balancing, is feasible.
In this case, the LVS is really directing local connections (on A or B) to
the X/Y servers. It is not directing external connections from the internet.
