Heartbeat and Linux Virtual Server

This talk will show how you can build scaleable and reliable Internet services using Linux, with the Linux Virtual Server kernel patch, and the Heartbeat package. I'll concentrate on the 'classic' L4 switching scenario whereby traffic is load balanced between a pool of servers with transparent handling of failure/overloading of individual servers, and also of the Linux boxes which are doing the load balancing.

The talk will try to explain what Heartbeat and LVS do, why you might want to deploy them, and how they work under the hood - illustrated with packet dumps and snippits of the Linux networking code.
