I want to cluster some freeBSD servers, The purpose of this is to learn.
I would like to  run some basic services like www and mail on a test
network. I would like to set up the servers so if one server falls over
the other will take over the services automatically, load balanceing would
be good as well. I have googled, I could be looking in the wrong place ,
there seems not to be much in regard to seting up freebsd in a cluster,
lots on linux. I have looked at the High Availability Linux project , I
see on the front page that it will run on freebsd.

So I am a bit lost and i am wanting to learn how to cluster freebsd web
and mail servers, I have looked at  Beowulf clusters, which seem to give
computers more grunt, Can some on on the list please advise me on what
clustering softwhere i need to get started and if the High Availability
Linux project softwhere will do the job.

pound (/usr/ports/www/pound) can be used on HTTP(S) level.

>From pkg-descr:

The Pound program is a reverse proxy, load balancer and HTTPS front-end for Web server(s). Pound was developed to enable distributing load among several Web-servers, and to allow for a convenient SSL wrapper for those Web servers that do not offer it natively. Pound is distributed under the GPL - no warranty, it's free to use, copy and give away.
