8.103. keepalived

Updated keepalived packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The keepalived packages provide simple and robust facilities for load-balancing and high-availability. The load-balancing framework relies on the well-know 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 update also fixes the following bugs:

Bug Fixes

BZ#967641
Previously, the VRRP alert emails sent by the keepalived daemon did not contain the "to" header, which complicated filtering and sorting such messages by email software. With this update, keepalived has been modified to include the "to" header into email alerts as expected.
BZ#1007575
Previously, when keepalived compared the local primary IP address with another IP address, these two addresses had different byte-ordering. Consequently, multiple routers were created in a master state. With this update, the local primary IP address is converted to network byte order before the comparison, thus fixing this bug.
The keepalived packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.2.13, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#1052380, BZ#1077201)
