Pen – Simple load balancer

Interesting little project, this pen happens to be. No, it’s not a red or blue pen. It’s actually a load balancer for simple TCP/IP protocols. So basically how it works is that it takes something like httpd, and combines several servers together and shows the world the combined total as one super single server. When one of the mini-servers goes down, then all of the clients are redirected to the remaining good servers and all is well in availability land.
You say… what? What did you just say? And we answer: “Face it, you’re just not going to figure out load balancing if the above doesn’t make sense. Capiche?”
