The file server is a key factor to accomplish the data sharing essential in distributed systems. The file server is perhaps the most heavily used resource of the distributed systems and as an outcome; its performance is vital and critical to the victory of the system. The explosive growth of the web contents and internet users has led to increasing concentration on two major challenges in these systems: scalability and high availability of network file system. A simple load-sharing mechanism for the NFS client to switch to a lightly-load server based on the number of NFS client's RPC requests for a period of time, making these systems more efficient and scalable.
