mod_perl2 User's Guide

Where to get software written by other parties that might be useful (or necessary) when running mod_perl.
Perl is probably already installed on your machine, but you should at least check the version you are using. It is highly recommended that you have at least Perl version 5.004. You can get the latest perl version from http://cpan.org/src/. Try the direct download link http://cpan.org/src/stable.tar.gz. You can get Perl documentation from the same location (although copious documentation is included in the downloaded Perl distribution).
You can download most of the Perl modules from CPAN. There are many mirrors of this site. The main site's URL is http://cpan.org/.
You may want to search the Perl modules database by using http://search.cpan.org/.
Either use the search form, or type in the name of the package the
module is distributed in. For example if you are looking for
Apache::DumpHeaders, you can type:
Squid Linux 2.x Redhat RPMs : http://home.earthlink.net/~intrep/linux/
Ask Bjoern Hansen has written the
for Apache that sets the
X-Forwarded-For field when doing a
ProxyPass, similar to what Squid does. His module is available from
one of these URLs: http://modules.apache.org/,
with instructions on how to compile it and whatnot.
ApacheBench comes with the Apache distribution.
should be available from the mod_backhand CVS tree: http://www.backhand.org/mod_backhand/
mod_redundancy is a module that works with Apache webserver. It creates a Master/Slave Relationship between two physical webservers. The Slave takes over the IP-Address(es) and the Webservice(s) in case of a failure of the Master. One of the clues of this solution is, that the Redundancy/Failover-Configuration is made inside the Apache-Configfile.
The product is neither OSS, nor free :(
The homepage of mod_redundancy is http://www.ask-the-guru.com .
You will find the definitive guide to load balancing techniques at the High-Availability Linux Project site -- http://linux-ha.org/

The latest ip filter includes some simple load balancing code, that allows a round-robin distribution onto several machines via ipnat. That may be a simple solution for a few specific load problem. http://coombs.anu.edu.au/~avalon/
The package name is libapreq.
