Looking at the documentation for LVS, it mentions that it needs two
nodes, a primary node and a backup node which then feeds into n real

Does this mean that I will need two additional machines to be able to do
LVS or would I be able to double up a couple of the webservers as the
nodes ?

Thanks for the feedback,
