Routing mail messages to your mailserver efficiently

Post date: May 12, 2006, 12:05 Category: Network Views: 3806 Comments
Tutorial quote: If you control satellite systems which need to relay their mail through a centralized host for sending then you have several choices. Perhaps the simplest software to use is the nullmailer program.

In the past we've looked at setting up exim, postfix, and sendmail forwarding but if you're not expecting to send much mail, and you don't need much processing then running a full mailserver is probably overkill.

The nullmailer package is very simple to configure and install.

How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster

Post date: April 28, 2006, 06:04 Category: Network Views: 4689 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently.
