Issued on: 2013-11-20
Last updated on: 2013-11-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Load Balancer (v. 6)


Updated ipvsadm packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The ipvsadm package provides the ipsvadm tool to administer the IP Virtual
Server services offered by the Linux kernel.

The ipvsadm packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.26, which provides
new features to IPVS from the kernel side, which take full-advantage of PE
config of SIP PE-data. In addition, this update:

* fixes the "One Packet Scheduler" output for the status and save operations to
include all Virtual Servers instead of only those configured with a persistent
flag (BZ#986189);

* addresses a possible, but very unlikely, memory corruption issues;

* includes minor improvements to the manual pages related to ipvsadm.

Users of ipvsadm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs and add these enhancements.

to your system have been applied.
