Can I just ask a naive question? Needing to load balance is only due to
the sites requiring PCI-based IDS isn't it? I mean, there are Gb IDS out
there - they wouldn't need load balancers would they?
Pretty scary: Gb Ethernet isn't exactly cutting edge these days - being
required to go over to load balancers must really change the budget
[so sayeth the lucky 100M-max Snort user ;-)]
