This was a very impressive demonstration. Afterwards, Jason setup his gear at the BSD booth for a live demo. He'd start an ssh session, a ping and a large file transfer. Unplug the master router, there'd be a slighter higher latency on one ping packet, the transfer continued and the ssh session stayed up and you could see the backup turn into the master. Plug the master back in, backup became backup again. No noticeable packet loss (apparantly it takes 3 packets to do the switchover).
