    lvs doesn't implement any internal failover features. it relies on other
    unix tools to handle that. heartbeat, fake, mon, any linux/unix failover
    tools.

    there are packages that put these pieces together for the user. redhat's
    "piranha" tools conglomerate lvs and failover tools (and some other
    clusting as well). horms' ultramonkey
    (http://ultramonkey.sourceforge.net/) is another centralized place for
    everything one might need for a highly-available balancer (lvs, heartbeat,
    ldirectord...). turbolinux and va provide mechanisms as well, as do
    others.

    -tcl.
