OP only mentions load balancing between two k12 servers so my suggestion.

I have snipped out most of what you said but yes that would be
ultimate. I did try running open-mosix cluster along with a k12 but
that was three years back and the process apperantly died when
migrating from node to node. Have not had the chance to put together a
bench thereafter to see if that or some other cluster server project
is able to work.

Will look out for some positive news on this front.

PS: I know most of people do not follow email niceties (mostly they
are not aware) but if you follow bottom post/in-line post style of
email conversations it becomes a whole lot easier to carry on
meaningful dialogue and you can snip out what is not meaningful too.
Most people just hit reply button and top post leaving prior message
appended uselessly at bottom. See if you can adopt this style and
persuade others.
