Question Problem understanding where to set IPVS in load balancing.


Hi,

[Please ignore this post... I was confused. A good night sleep and I saw the error of my ways. ]

I followed this Howto on how to setup a load balancing.

This is what I am trying to do
Code:
                              +-------------lb1---------------+      +-----------------XEN----------------------+
                        +---->| 192.168.1.51 -> 192.168.100.1 |--+   |                  +---------------------+ |
                        |     |                               |  |   |                  | Dom1 192.168.100.21 | |
                        |  +->| 192.168.0.1 (hb)              |  |   |                  +---------------------+ |
WAN --> 192.168.1.50(v) |  |  +-------------------------------+  +-->| 192.168.100.20                           |
                        |  +->| 192.168.0.2 (hb)              |  |   |                  +---------------------+ |
                        |     |                               |  |   |                  | Dom2 192.168.100.22 | |
                        +---->| 192.168.1.52 -> 192.168.100.2 |--+   |                  +---------------------+ |
                              +-------------lb2---------------+      +------------------------------------------+
(v) = IPV
hb = heartbeat
lb1 = load balancer
lb2 = load balancer

I understand that traffic coming from the 'WAN' will point to the IPV 192.168.1.50 so whatever box (lb1 or lb2) hosts the IPV, the traffic will go through it.

What I don't understand is how traffic that is initiated from one of the DomX will know how to reach the WAN and chose between lb1 or lb2?

Do I need to have 2 IPVS? One for 192.168.1.51/52 and one for 192.168.100.1/2?
Code:
                              +-------------lb1----------------+                         +-----------------XEN----------------------+
                        +---->| 192.168.1.51 -> 192.168.100.11 |--+                      |                  +---------------------+ |
                        |     |                                |  |                      |                  | Dom1 192.168.100.21 | |
                        |  +->| 192.168.0.1 (hb)               |  |                      |                  +---------------------+ |
WAN --> 192.168.1.50(v) +  |  +--------------------------------+  + 192.168.100.10(v) -->| 192.168.100.20                           |
                        |  +->| 192.168.0.2 (hb)               |  |                      |                  +---------------------+ |
                        |     |                                |  |                      |                  | Dom2 192.168.100.22 | |
                        +---->| 192.168.1.52 -> 192.168.100.12 |--+                      |                  +---------------------+ |
                              +-------------lb2----------------+                         +------------------------------------------+
Any pointers to documentation that will explain this to me is welcome

Thank you all.
