- The Open Source Load Balancer
OpenLoba was originally created for the VMware Ultimate Virtual
Appliance Challenge , and was started on March 10, 2006.
have been messing around with different ideas and working on small little projects here and
there and wanted to make some sort
of project available to the public
and the VMware Challenge was the push that got me started.
So basically OpenLoBa is a bunch of open source tools put
together to make a nice tcp load balancer solution with a web front end.
What does it do?
It takes a group of specified hosts and balances them via round robin.
When a balanced host goes down it will redirect traffic to a
failover host until the original host is brought back up. It also has
support for "sticky" connections, so it can balance services that
require a persistant connection like https.
Currently there are no mirrors.
It can be
found at sourceforge.net
What does OpenLoBa run on?
Currently OpenLoBa is a Virtual Appliance is built using
virtual machine and can be run on
VMware ESX Server

I would like to help but don't know how.
You can donate money :D, Computer related books or
anything you think that would encourage me or others to donate more
time to this project.
- Build a stand alone install
- Expand the web end with more options
- Enable failover between multiple OpenLoBa units
- Logging/connection status/graphs
- Thin down the install size
