Question Apache web server load balance, suggestions needed.


Hi,

I'm in need of a good load balancer software to load balance my Apache web server. I need to add/remove nodes on fly. My nodes have only single IP and I can't assign any virtual IP, so following the steps of some howto (like http://www.howtoforge.com/high_avail...apache_cluster)
is not possible for me.

I've tested perlbal (http://www.danga.com/perlbal/) but I can not add/remove nodes without restarting it and this problem is also with another piece of software Pound (http://www.apsis.ch/pound/)

I had also an overview of Linux virtual server project (http://www.linuxvirtualserver.org) but found it fairly complex while adding/removing nodes on fly,persistent connections.

Should I try any new software or stick with perlbal (to my info, its working fine except when updating nodes database)? Can anyone give me any suggestion in this regard? I will be highly thankful.

Regards,
