MOREBALANCE(1) MoreBalance Handbook MOREBALANCE(1)

morebalance - a sophisticated load balancing tool

morebalance [options]

In order to make internet services more reliable and scalable, a whole bunch of clustering and load balancing tools has been created. Most of them are much more powerful than morebalance ever intends to be, but for smaller installations this program should be sufficient.
Port forwarding, load balancing and (to a certain degree) quality of service can be handled. Additionally, protection against DoS-type attacks is built in, which dynamically locks out IP addresses.
MoreBalance runs as a daemon which restarts itself should it ever crash. While no output is produced normally, verbosity can be increased in the configuration file which gives some statistics.

-c, --configuration=file
Use this configuration file instead of the default (a local morebalance.conf file).
-i, --immediate=string
Instead of a configuration file, use a one-line configuration option directly from the command line.
-d, --daemon
Run in daemon mode. This way, no status messages are printed to the console. This is highly recommended for server mode.
-h, --help
Display a coprehensive help screen describing all the possible command line options, and exit.
-v, --version
Display the version number and exit.
-s, --spec
Display the internal build specifications and exit.
