Web server clustering is most widely used technology for large enterprise applications to host online web services. It has been widely used to improve the performance of the web servers. Moreover, as the web has become an important business service delivery infrastructure, the need for supporting TCP connection failure in a web service has become more important. It is greatly affected by the amount of traffic on the backend servers. In such a scenario this paper proposes a method for eliminating the situation of TCP connection failure transparently from the end users in a dispatcher based, application level web server cluster and this reduces the connection time of the client with the server.
