Abstract
We investigate the issues involved in developing a scalable
World Wide Web (WWW) server on a cluster of workstations and
parallel machines. The objective is to strengthen the processing
capabilities of such a server by utilizing the power of multicom­
puters to match huge demands in simultaneous access requests
from the Internet. We have implemented a system called SWEB
on a distributed memory machine, the Meiko CS­2, and networked
workstations. The scheduling component of the system actively
monitors the usages of CPU, I/O channels and the interconnection
network to effectively distribute HTTP requests across processing
units to exploit task and I/O parallelism. We present the experi­
mental results on the performance of this system.
