WWW­based Internet information service has grown
enormously during the last few years, and major perfor­
mance bottlenecks have been caused by WWW server and
Internet bandwidth inadequacies. Utilizing client­site com­
puting power and also multi­processor support at the server
site can substantially improve the system response time. In
this paper, we examine the use of scheduling techniques
in monitoring and adapting to workload variation at client
and server sites for supporting fast WWW image brows­
ing. We provide both analytic and experimental results to
identify the impact of system loads and network bandwidth
on response times and demonstrate the effectiveness of our
