IPv6 Server Load Balancing - DSR

OpenSolaris ILB is open solution ;)

but yea, that's what we've started looking at -- hence LVM / HAProxy as well.. (though LVM is IPv4 only, and HAProxy is NAT only for IPv6)

does relayd support UDP as well as TCP or is it layer7 only like HAProxy ?

In the case of ILB, I'm not convinced that it's a problem with the LB itself, but rather the idiosyncrasies of ND in IPv6 that is causing the problem.. but I may be wrong... at any rate, something's amiss ...
