Your mail client is breaking the list address again... so I've cc'd the
list in response.

Have you even looked at the comprehensive documentation which is linked
to in the footer of every single list message?

The ARP problem is a fundamental issue with LVS-DR, requiring that the
realservers are configured in such a way that they do not respond to ARP
requests for the VIP.

If they are not, then very unusual traffic characteristics can occur for
a given set of VIPs. Some will always go via the director, some will hop
around, and some will almost always "stick" to a realserver. It depends
entirely on local network configuration, devices, and network traffic

Please - have a read. It's probably the single widest documented LVS


Please read the documentation before posting - it's available at: mailing list - lvs-users@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
