I've had a lot of success with haproxy. Check it out. And if you
incorporate heartbeat with it then if one haproxy goes down the other
will pick up its ip and start directing traffic.


Thanks,

I am looking for an intelligent IP sprayer or round robin configuration. A
simple ping is NOT sufficient. For example, if I have a location like
sametime.corp.dekko.com and I have two servers sametime01.corp.dekko.com
and sametime02.corp.dekko.com I want it to route it to one of these that
is actually working. Now, just because I can ping
sametime01.corp.dekko.com and it comes back successfully doesn't mean the
service is working. The ping will be returned by the OS. The service may
be a job running under the subsystem assigned to the a particular Domino
server.

Is there some way to do this?

I also don't want to go from saying:
"We only have one sametime server. If that is down we're toast."
to saying:
"We only have one intelligent IP sprayer. If that is down we're toast."
IOW, I don't want to just trickle up the single point of failure.
