I would just use the OpenBSD packet filter.  You can do clustering/failover
between routers (lod balancers) using the pfsync stuff in OpenBSD.  Not sure
about keeping track of up and down machines but I am almost sure  you could
script this in given the open API  OBSD's modified tcpdump binary that
contains the traffic tags from the bridge interface.  Hardware wise, there's
the Big IP stuff from F-5.  I have no experience with the hardware but use
the OpenBSD packet filter and love it.
