ldirector (Linux Director Daemon) is a background process computer program used to monitor and administer real servers in the Linux Virtual Server (LVS) cluster.

Ldirectord monitors the health of the real servers by periodically requesting a known URL and checking that the response contains an expected string. If a service fails on a server, then the server is taken out of the pool of real servers and will be reinserted once it comes back on line.
