The Linux Virtual Server Project is a project to cluster many real servers together into a highly available, high-performance virtual server. The LVS load balancer handles connections from clients and passes them on the the real servers (so-called Layer 4 switching) and can virtualize almost any TCP or UDP service, like HTTP, HTTPS, NNTP, FTP, DNS, ssh, POP3, IMAP4, SMTP, etc. It is fully transparent to the client accessing the virtual service.

Release Notes: This release fixes the endian problem with the sync message size.
Release Notes: This release removes the superfluous call of waitpid in the sync code, retries running kernel_thread when memory is temporarily exhausted, and tidies up the code.
Release Notes: This release is included in the official 2.6.0 kernel. It has many important changes such as handling nonlinear packets correctly, fixing timers, avoiding race conditions, and other bugfixes.
Release Notes: Changed to use the Jekins hash function in the IPVS connection hash against a possible hash attack.
