Web Server Optimization: A DNS Based Approach
A group of web-server system can be deployed to support high request rate. The Domain Name System (DNS) servers act as a mediator between the client and web-servers. It dispatches the client request among the web-servers through the URL-name to IP-address mapping mechanism. In this paper, the authors propose a group of web-server system arranged in the multiple logical ring connection, in which the DNS evaluate the performance of the proposed web-server system by using adaptive load balancing algorithm. They show the performance measurements for the proposed system.
