Hi,

 When booster detects the http server has fallen over/stopped currently booster still serves up a html page.  If the LoadBalancer on the front is pointed towards web booster to obtain a heartbeat then it still believes there to be a valid http server available and will still continue to direct traffic to this web server.

Ideally what should happen is that when the http server that web booster is sat in front of disappears then web booster should not serve anything. 

This in turn will allow the load balancer to recognise the http server has failed and will not direct traffic to the http server that has fallen over/become unavailable.

Adding this would be very useful in a clustered environment with load balancer sat on the front.

Thanks in advance
