Hi Geir,

one other thing would be to not use the SRV records for loadbalancing. I think 
the dispatcher module has functionality to query configured servers with an 
options ping, and disable balancing to failed ones. Or you can use the 
carrierroute module, which gives you complete control over the routing, you 
can disable then the failed GW with some external scripts.
