This is something which could be done and should be done but hasn't.
Probably because big customers have the money for IP Sprayers/load balancers.
But if this is a thorn in your side as an admin or as a user vote for it.
In my session at The View conference 90% of the room wanted it.

I've only got about 200 users, but almost 1/3 of them are INotes only users. We cluster servers across the WAN so even if cost wasn't an issue, an IP Sprayer isn't much help.

Bruce, It is a quantity thing obviously. More people using it, more you need to manage it. One less manual process when involved in a failure situation is always better than one more thing to possibly get done incorrectly.
Not for everyone's environment but looking for feedback for IBM on this topic.

This would be a useful addition. There's some question as to what exact functionality people customers want. Some would only want the cluster mate's URL returned when the home server was unavailable. Some would want the redirector to round-robin sessions between available nodes. This wiki entry ( { Link } ) describes scenarios and options.
