Can you perhaps explain a little more what you are trying to do. I am not sure I understand.

I want to install 2 motion servers. I want to reach the 2 servers via a virtual ip address to do loadbalancing. Do You know if this kind of configuration is relevant ? I wonder if the end-user will get a correct motion video result ?

Server   Server
motion1   Motion2

--------- ip1 ip2
---------------- virtual ip

the end-user send http request to the virtual ip with do loadbalancing between the 2 servers.

Many thanks for your help

It is still not very obvious what you want to do.

You want to run two machines with two motions and two cameras?

You want to stream? You want to present still pictures or saved mpeg files?

Each motion server is configured with the same list of network cameras (thread1.conf, thread2.conf, ...).

The video streaming is shown by the end-user on a web page with the motion web server via the MjpegProxy (nph-mjprox) and the cambozola applet via an ip virtual address.

Well. It seems you are doing a normal load sharing thing and I do not see why it would not work.
