Thanks, didn't know about Corosync. Will keep it in mind for future projects.

comment Keepalived over GRE tunnel for failover on VPS environment
In other words, you're forced to use ELB for everything? Or is there a clustering framework that actually works on EC2?

comment Slackware: Chef or puppet?
ptman, this is awesome, I didn't know this. As of a few hours ago, I got slapt-get going by just setting the provider as "slapt" in the package definition. The patch I linked above seems to work great, but I'll keep your function in mind of anything goes wrong. Thanks!

That's awesome, just what I need. I'd still like to figure out how to get tunnels working eventually, but this solves the exact problem I have. Thanks, Willy.

comment Clustering on cloud/VPS providers
Thanks for the response. I have floating IPs I can use (unlimited), so that's not my problem. Any idea on how to use HA tools (keepalived, wackamole, heartbeat, etc) without multicasting?

comment HAproxy roundrobin balancing does not appear to be distributing evenly
That explains it...can't believe I forgot about elements. I also tried to figure out why it was doing it on pages with no elements...turns out it was a request for favicon.ico =). Thanks a bunch.

comment HAproxy roundrobin balancing does not appear to be distributing evenly
Willy, thanks for the response. I think I've narrowed this down. When I was running my tests, the servers in the farm (www1, www2) were always up. I monitored the stats page very closely. I just observed that when I click a link on the page that refreshes it, haproxy does distribute the load correctly (www1,www2,www1,www2...) but when I hit the browser refresh button, it sticks to one server. The only difference is that when I hit refresh: "Cache-Control: max-age=0" is sent. Oddly enough, when the refresh is hit, HAproxy seems to send data to both servers (bytes in/out). Any ideas?
