Bug#488372: ITP: lbcd -- Return system load via UDP for remote load balancers

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Guido Guenther <agx@sigxcpu.org>

* Package name    : lbcd
  Version         : 3.2.6
  Upstream Author : Roland Schemers, Larry Schwimmer, Russ Allbery
* URL             : http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/lbcd/
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: C, Perl
  Description     : Return system load via UDP for remote load balancers

 lbcd is a daemon that answers UDP queries for system load information and
 returns such information as uptime, load, number of logged-in users,
 percentage free of /tmp and /var/tmp, and whether there is a user on the
 console.  It is intended for use with a load balancing system, and is
 particularly useful for such things as Unix clusters for remote login
 where a traditional hardware load balancing solution doesn't work as well.
 No load balancing system is included in this package, only the client
 daemon and a simple Perl script to query it.  No security or access
 control is done by the daemon, so access control must be done via
 iptables, a firewall, or an equivalent system.

Russ already did all the packaging and the package has been in active
use for quiet some time. It's just lacking an upload into the archive.
