Crossroads is a load balance and failover utility for TCP-based services. It is a daemon program running in userspace and features extensive configurability, polling of backends using "wakeup calls", detailed status reporting, "hooks" for special actions when backend calls fail, and more. It is service-independent; it is usable for HTTP(S), SSH, SMTP, DNS, etc.
