Hey All.

I'm kind of new to the livejournal development thing, but I have a few interests (mainly client development for unusual devices such as email and messaging devices, pagers and cell phones, etc).

However, I was wondering what software runs the LiveJournal Load Balancer, and if it's documented somewhere how these load balancers ascertain the difference between paid and free accounts. If anyone can point me any links (either privately or publicly) please let me know, as I'm involved with another project that has a couple thousand greedy users that needs to trim the fat.

The situation I'm HOPING to implement is a single box situation whereby the load balancer, database, and two web servers (one throttled, one not) all run on the same system, as the site can currently handle that, and since it's a free site, the more boxen you colocate, the more $$$ the isp wants.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
