    Hi,

    LVS is a traffic balance solution for publish services like web or ftp, these services are normally on a server farm in the same LAN of the LVS Server, while VRRP is a protocol to manage High Availability clusters, normally routers and FW and also LVS clusters.

    Heartbeat does the same as VRRP, in fact is a software that it could be based on VRRP or a different HA protocol.

    I have no knowledge about carp

    I hope this helps to you

    hay thanks man!! finally someone reply. Have you had any experience with HeartBeat?

    from my understanding Heartbeat can do 'load balancing'. have any tip, tricks, tuto on how this can be configured in a Linux based system or from ur own experiance?

    Hi again,

    I have no experience with Heartbeat yet, but now I'm trying to run my first Load balancer with ipvs (LVS), but I'm in trouble and I have posted about it here in the list.

    If I achieve a success then the next step is to add a second in HA with Heartbeat.

    Regards
