A Web Clustered System for Achieving Higher Performances through Load Balancing Mechanism

In this paper, we study a methodology of distributing client requests in the LVS cluster system. The basic WLC algorithm is studied intensively. A load distributing algorithm which assigns its weight into each real server is devised by considering the state of the network resources on real servers. Network simulation is executed to estimate balanced usage of the resource using web load generating software. In order to analyze the dynamics of server performance due to the workload, we model a system software to evaluate the level of load balancing in the LVS, and perform actual experiments using web agenda. It is shown that the correction potentiality of the suggested algorithm is somewhat better than the WLC algorithm in terms of balanced resources usage.
