Binary package “fair” in ubuntu precise
high availability load balancer for TCP connections
Fair is a system for implementing load balancers; it consists of two daemons:
carrousel and transponder. Carrousel, which performs load balancing services,
typically runs on a load balancer; transponder runs on the servers.
Fair understands network topologies where one node is reachable via more than
one IP address; this allows not only the servers, but the network to be
redundant as well. This distinguishes fair from other load balancers.
