Hi Everyone,

Nowadays I am planning building a load-balanced squid + web nodes cluster.
The detailed information:
Operating System: Linux 2.6.9

Here we have two options:

                 squidA + Apache1
Lvs +

                squidB + Apache2

(Lvs = linux virtual server)
SquidA forms sibling relationship with SquidB using ICP.
Apache1 is parent (original server) to SquidA.
Apache2 is parent (original server) to SquidB.

The other is

                                Squid-parentA + apahce1
Squid-child +
                                Squid-parentB + apahce2

Squild-child round robins Squid-parentA and Squid-parentB.

Anybody has any suggestions on the two options?
Which is better of the two implementations?
