I have 2 frontend apache webservers that are load balanced using ldirectord. ldirectord is kept running on one server or the other by heartbeat
Recently I upgraded these servers from Debian Etch to Debian Lenny
Ever since then, every once-in-a-while, the ldirectord process disappears, however, load balancing appears to keep working. Page http://webserver/server-status shows connections being served on both servers, even while there is no ldirectord process running.
Can anyone explain what is going on here?
