  	Have a look at *BSD pf for loadbalancing. Currently we are using 
for more than a year now a neat feature of *BSD called address pool with 
load-balancing outgoing traffic - working with IPv6 out of the box. The 
dead service checkingis done by nagios + custom scripts. For more 


In the near future we will migrate our load-balacing system to relayd 
with FreeBSD:
