The RSPLIB project has just released version 2.7.13 of the RSPLIB Open Source RSerPool package for Linux, FreeBSD and MacOS X. It can be downloaded from the project homepage: http://tdrwww.iem.uni-due.de/dreibholz/rserpo... . RSPLIB is the Open Source implementation (GPLv3) of the IETF's new framework for Reliable Server Pooling (RSerPool), which is described in RFC 5351 to RFC 5356. If you a looking for a Grid compution solution which is simple, easy to setup and mostly self-configuring, you are probably looking for RSerPool! RSerPool provides lightweight protocols and functionalities for the management of server pools and sessions between users and pools. In particular, RSerPool can be used for highly available applications and for load distribution and load balancing in server pools. Its API is simple to use and understand, making the development of own distributed applications very easy. Details on RSerPool and the RSPLIB implementation can be found on the project's website: http://tdrwww.iem.uni-due.de/dreibholz/rserpo... . A detailed introduction to the IETF RSerPool framework and the RSPLIB implementation can be found in http://duepublico.uni-duisburg- essen.de/servlets/DerivateServlet/Derivate-16326/Dre2006-final.pdf . The RSPLIB project is still looking for a Debian sponsor to upload the package to Debian/GNU Linux! See: http://mentors.debian.net/cgi-bin/sponsor- pkglist?action=details;package=rsplib . An RSPLIB package is already included in Ubuntu Linux since version 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex); the latest Ubuntu package is also available in a Launchpad PPA for all active Ubuntu versions: https://launchpad.net/~dreibh/+archive/ppa . Happy RSerPooling!
