Or you could have just one VIP and assign different weights to the

VIP:8000 ->  rs1:8001 weight=1000
         ->  rs1:8002 weight=500
         ->  rs1:8003 weight=250
         ->  rs2:8001 weight=1000
         ->  ...

Of course, that would still mean your rs's get some connections though,
just like devnull's example. And you can only do this with LVS-NAT AFAIK
(since the dst port is different on the rs than on the vip).
