Vassilis Pandis <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: Stargazer
System name: stargazer
Type: 1

Stargazer is a load balancer with proxy capabilities. It can distribute 
requests over a network thus maximizing network performance. It also includes 
fail-over mechanisms that will allow requests meant for a certain box to be 
redirected to another computer, should the former stop responding. It is quite 
compact and has been written in the C language. It supports both TCP and UDP 
and can redirect any port. It is capable of load balancing any type of data so 
is therefore suitable for protocols utilising SSL too. It is a proxying load 
balancer which means that client IP addresses are not available to the server 
farm and all data appears to be coming form the load balancer. It currently 
supports some load reports ( statistics ) .
Future goals include administrator-friendliness, porting to other platforms, 
content-based load balancing for further performance enchancement and other 
features, which cannot be listed here but are described in the TODO file. It 
will be released under the GNU GPL.

It does not exist yet but I\'m working on it. Most of the code is ready and 
it\'s a few weeks away from 0.1.0 , Release Candidate 1 .
