Hi Heikki, 

Thank you very much for that. I have one more question: Am I correct in assuming that if a server responds with an Access-Reject in response to a Status-Server message, it is still marked as alive? From what I understand, either Access-Accept or Access-Reject is acceptable in that regard?

With Kind Regards

    When FarmSize is set, the workers message via Gossip backend (currently 
    Redis) about reachability of the next hop. By default all workers use 
    Status-Server probes. However, it's likely that this probing is 
    excessive, so you should try something like this:

    # see goodies/farmsize.cfg for a full example
        # Parameters

        KeepaliveTimeout 5
        # Other parameters

    To summarise: with the above one worker (instance #1) does the probing 
    and uses Redis to keep the other workers informed about the next hop
