Executive Summary

This paper presents an analytical model and the way of simulation for distributing workload on a distributed web server system. The increase in the Internet traffic has also necessitated the conventional Domain Naming Service (DNS) to operate at a much lower efficiency. Among a number of problems associated with the DNS, a key problem has to do with the authoritative DNS not being able to process complete knowledge of the proximity. This makes the authoritative DNS less effective in monitoring server availability and routing incoming requests around failed servers.
