Balance is load balancing solution being a simple but powerful generic tcp proxy with round robin load balancing and failover mechanisms. Its behaviour can be controlled at runtime using a simple command line syntax.
/usr/local/sbin/balance 80 10.10.1.2:5005
Balance binds on port 80 of the local IP address 10.10.1.1 and distributes connections to the IPv4 addresses 10.10.1.2 port 5005
Today… balance has saved my life 🙂
