PerlBal (as in this old post:
http://lists.danga.com/pipermail/perlbal/2005-November/000138.html ) can do
this as well.

I wonder about the topology.   We used to run with Perlbal (and heartbeat
and IP failover) in front of a pool of web servers.   We now run with
hardware load balancers in front of a pool of web servers.

The load balancer does make it easy to adjust the pool -- as well as
gracefully handle a web server dropping out of the pool.   I don't want to
add yet another set of servers for an extra proxy layer.

So, I'm currently thinking of running Nginx on each web server. (Keep-alive
between the load balancer and Nginx, and no keep-alive between Nginx and
Catalyst with maybe Starman.)

Anyone see why this might be a bad (or good) approach?
