Bloody cluster solutions

In preparation to get our website (and all those other websites – like www.fh-neubrandenburg.de or www.hmt-rostock.de) clustered, someone bought the cluster version of the PacketPro 450. These things are nice, especially considering you don’t need to fiddle around with LVS yourself (which is a *real* pain in the ass).

The only problem I have currently with them is that they scan the database and web nodes every 30 seconds, and since we have an active node and a hot-standby both do this and producing this:

That’s only the logs from three minutes … now figure you have it running for like four days and figure what the average log size due to such crap is … But at least it looks solvable, though I gonna have to call them tomorrow and ask for a patch/update to get their ssh-scan to send some banner when performing the service check.
