I was pointed to LVS as a means of solving a 'growth'

All of the people on this list are replying for free in
their spare time. The best we can do on this list is to give
solutions to technical problems on setting up and running
LVS. I give about 15secs to a posting to decide if I've got
something useful to say. The posting has to indicate that
the person has analysed the problem to a stage where an
answer exists. If they don't know what the problem is,
there's no point in replying.
Often when questions like this come up, there are people who
are happy to share their experiences, but in general the
people who've been working with LVS for years will expect
you to have read the docs and know what LVS does before you
post. In the time I alot for a reply, I don't have time to
figure out whether LVS is best for you - you should pay a
consultant to do this if you can't do it yourself.

LVS will assign users randomly to a machine and should
expect the user to wind up on a different machine for each
session. This is required for load balancing and so you can
failout a machine for maintenance.
If so, please point me towards resources, links, or
tutorials on how to set such a beast up.
You have google just like everyone else.
