comment DFS-R alternatives?
Thanks for the suggestion, will definitely look at it. Did you ever experience any file corruption, etc.? Also, do you have any experience as to how it compares to DFS-R?

comment iperf max udp multicast performance peaking at 10Mbit/s?
I turned off Flow Control on the NIC of my dev machine and am now getting ~10MBytes/sec, same as on the server. So that definitely helped but is still only 10% of link capacity, any idea why? I tried adjusting the UDP send buffer which didn't seem to have any effect

comment iperf max udp multicast performance peaking at 10Mbit/s?
hm, I do have an IP Phone plugged into the same switch on the same subnet which is probably running at 10MBit - could that be the limiting factor? However, the switch on the server is a Cisco 3750G, fully running at 1Gbit on all links, why wouldn't I manage to achieve more then 10% of link capacity there?

comment LVS - source IP
I do have NAT mode running fine as of now, however, my services do not see the actual source IP and only an NAT'ed source IP. It'd be great if you could elaborate on how I can get LVS in NAT mode to pass on the actual source IP? Thanks!

comment Sync time of W2k8 server to another W2k8 server - non domain controlled
This doesn't really look like a proper solution to me. These are servers, so they might not have any network logons for months. Also, I need highly accurate time within millisecond drifts, so I'd not a solution that syncs every couple minutes

comment LVS - source IP
Thanks for those instructions. I will give it a try in my test environment here. The reason why I'd rather not change anything on the production servers is that they have 4 NIC's that are bonded in pairs of 2 across two switches and 2 vlans and I don't really want to screw up that setup

comment Load Balancing long running TCP connections
Warner, as outlined in my original question, my traffic is non http traffic. It's traffic over TCP with pretty consistent data transfer rates (traffic can by spiky though). Connections are made rarely but remain established for multiple hours.

comment Load Balancing long running TCP connections
Thanks a lot for your reply! The firewalls we're using right now are actually Vyatta boxes, that's why I was looking at HAProxy as I could easily host it on those machines as well and handle automatic failover with heartbeat. I think HAProxy can handle source-tracking but we have a few clients that are connecting from the same office and public IP, so they would all end up at the server?
