Updated piranha packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Extended Update Support.
Piranha provides high-availability and load balancing services for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The piranha packages contain various tools to administer and configure the Linux Virtual Server (LVS), as well as the heartbeat and failover components. LVS is a dynamically-adjusted kernel routing mechanism that provides load balancing, primarily for Web and FTP servers.

Bug Fix

Previously, the pulse daemon did not correctly detect when the lvsd daemon had been terminated. As a result, the pulse daemon did not trigger a failover. With this update, the pulse daemon correctly detects when lvsd has been terminated and, if a backup director is configured and active, will result in a failover.
All users of piranha are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixes this bug.
