Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

6.6. RHEA-2013:0355 — new package: keepalived

A new keepalived package is now available as a Technology Preview for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The keepalived package provides simple and robust facilities for load-balancing and high-availability. The load-balancing framework relies on the well-known and widely used Linux Virtual Server kernel module providing Layer4 network load-balancing. The keepalived daemon implements a set of health checkers to load-balanced server pools according their state. The keepalived daemon also implements the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), allowing router or director failover to achieve high availability.
This enhancement update adds the keepalived package to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as a Technology Preview. (BZ#846064)
