Ultramonkey ( will be based
around LVS, as are a number of other products.

The 50,000 figure is unsubstantiated and was _not_ claimed by anyone at VA
Linux Systems. A cluster with 16 apache servers and 2 LVS servers in a was
configured for Linux World New York but due to interconnect problems the
performance was never measured - we weren't happy with the throughput of the
NICs so there didn't seem to be a lot of point. This problem has been
resolved and there should be an opportunity to test this again soon.
