So, L3DSR is something that some companies with some larger
implementations use to get around certain short comings in large scale L2
networks..

I'm curious if this has ever been explored using LVS+iptables, (where
you'd actually have iptables set the DSCP outbound, or if you have found
the smarter way to handle from an open source type level is an
LVS+HAProxy, or LVS+NGINX type setup.

Could probably throw some CARP in there too?

anyway mostly looking to see what folks in the opensource community have
done along those lines.

Thanks
