AbstractAccess latency and load balancing are the two main issues in the design of clustered Web server architecture for achieving high performance. We propose a novel document distribution algorithm for load balancing on a cluster of distributed Web servers. We group Web pages that are likely to be accessed during a request session into a migrating unit, which is used as the basic unit of document placement. A modified binning algorithm is developed to distribute the migrating units among the Web servers to fulfil the load balancing. We also present a redirection mechanism, which makes use of a migrating unit's property, to reduce the cost of request redirections. The distribution of Web documents would be recomputed periodically to adapt to the changes in client request patterns and system configuration. Simulation results show that our solution can reduce the amount of request redirection and document migration, and it can distribute workload properly among Web servers.
