Because it needs to access service through load balancer. Because RS
does not know in advance where load balancer will send request (it can
be himself or another RS).
No ? I think I have a conception trouble, but I don't understand how to
handle that.
The service can be down on my RS, but it needs to access it through LVS
to answer another RS. But sometimes it answers itself because LVS has
decided to, what's wrong with that ?
