One thing I did not see in the thread are the HW load balancers you can
install inside the 6500.
You could use either the somewhat older CSM or the newer ACE modules:

Depending on the 6500 hardware you're using you might find SLB to be
slightly temperamental.

I'm not sure whether it was just our local Cisco rep trying to have us
bust out the cheque book or not, but the feedback we got was "IOS SLB on
Supervisor 2 is a miracle and not really intended for use." I'm not sure
if any of my coworkers ever filed TAC bugs when the 6500 would "forget"
things and require a reboot.
