Updated piranha packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Piranha provides high-availability and load-balancing services for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The piranha packages contain various tools to administer and configure the Linux Virtual Server (LVS), as well as the heartbeat and failover components. LVS is a dynamically-adjusted kernel routing mechanism that provides load balancing, primarily for Web and FTP servers.

Bug Fixes

BZ#857917
The IPVS timeout values in the Piranha web interface could be reset whenever the Global Settings page was visited. As a consequence, if the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) timeout, TCP FIN timeout, or User Datagram Protocol (UDP) timeout values had been set, these values could be erased from the configuration file. This bug has been fixed and all IPVS timeout values are preserved as expected.
BZ#860924
Previously, the Piranha web interface incorrectly displayed the value "5" for a virtual server interface. With this update, the Piranha web interface properly displays the interface associated with a virtual server.
All users of piranha are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.

Bug Fix

BZ#915584
Previously, the lvsd daemon did not properly activate the sorry server fallback service when all real servers were determined to be unavailable. As a result, incoming traffic for a virtual service with no available real servers were not directed to the sorry server. With this update, the lvsd daemon properly activates the sorry server when no real servers are available.
