comment Automatically updating routing table on server
I had wondered if ICMP redirects would come into play. Thanks for the info, if either of you form this as a question I'll award you the points.

comment Automatically updating routing table on server
@Shane, yes that sounds the obvious approach!. So your suggestion is to delegate one of the routers as the default, and use that to forward to the correct router? It seems a extra hop when the traffic is aimed at the non-default router.

comment How to configure mod_proxy_balancer to gracefully fail under high load
thanks Bryan, but if I understand this, the hot standby will only be used if (in your example) all four main server die (or are overwhelmed). What I want is none of the server to be overwhelmed, as maintain a target level of service, and if that can't be reached, some users see the sorry page, whilst others keep browsing the site. What I don't want, are browsers timing out, while tomcat is still rendering their request.
