dc.description.abstract A distributed multi server Web site can provide the scalability necessary to keep up with growing client demand at popular sites. Load balancing of these distributed Web server systems, consisting of multiple Web servers for document retrieval and a Domain name server (DNS) for address resolution, opens interesting problems. Unlike traditional parallel/distributed systems in which a centralized scheduler has full control of the system, the DNS controls only a very small fraction of the requests reaching the multi server Web site. This peculiarity, especially in the presence of highly skewed load, makes it very difficult to achieve acceptable load balancing and avoid overloading some Web server. DNS plays a very important role for balancing the load on multiple servers of cluster. Load balancing on multiple servers ensures that Web traffic doesn't overload one server while other servers sit idle, especially, in an environment in which the access frequencies from different client domain are not evenly distributed and the Web servers have different capacities. The point is how to choose the best candidate server location for retrieving data. The main focus of this paper is to study of DNS from this point of view. en_US
