In principle no. What probably has happened is that the heartbeat is not
being sent (or not being received) due to the load. The backup
assumes that the master has died. You could increase the timeout value.
Under DoS, I guess you could accept the machines behaving badly,
as long as they came back after. Looking from another machine,
it is is hard to tell the difference between a dead director
and one that is under heavy load.

I think it is as many IPs as the NIC can handle. I don't know that
LVS has any limits here. Julian?
