ISO or virtual appliance

Well the main idea behind and have been struggling to configure for almost
last one year is to have a open source alternative to DNS Based
failover/System monitoring thus have inbound loadbalancer.
Where DNS server monitors the hosts on particular port and if any of the
fails it removes the entry from zone and populate the entry with low TTL.
Just to give example. say I have two Public IP addresses natted with one
public IP  ---> --->  A   300  A   300

So, DNS will monitor the host on port 80 and as soon as it detects that
either of the host/link is down it would remove the associated entry and
re-populate the entries

Is any one aware of such solution readily available? I believe I already
posted similar question but havent heard much positive things.
