ucarp 1.3 is now available on http://www.blastwave.org/testing
This should be the 1st version of ucarp working well on Solaris too,
thanks to some patches a volunteer recently submitted.
UCARP is a freebsd version of a VRRP-like vip redundancy protocol.
This patch is needed for Solaris 8 to get a working failover.
Patch to write a PID file ofter starting of ucarp. For easier shutdown
of ucarp inside of a init script.
With this patch a non privileged (monitoring process) can write a file
to disable ucarp to invoke a failover depending not only on hardware
failure but also on service level (for example webserver) problem.
It is importend that only the monitoring process can write/remove this
Solaris only patch (tested on Solaris 8) to set the interface inside of
ucarp instead of the up/downscripts.
