You were very useful with your explanation. I'm looking at the current setup:
1. Heartbeat to monitor 2 nginx load balancers (one failsafe).
2. The load balancers (the active one) will proxy 6 web boxes, using the built-in round robin nginx balancer system.

So my question is more like a continuation to my current setup.
What to do, use HaProxy or the built-in nginx balancer?

Thank you for your patience.
