Abstract

As the Internet users are increasing rapidly, a cluster web server system is attracted by many researchers and Internet service providers. The cluster web server has been developed to efficiently support a larger number of users as well as to provide high scalable and available system. In order to provide the high performance in the cluster web server, efficient load distribution is important, and recently many content-aware request distribution techniques have been proposed. In this paper, we propose a new content-aware load balancing technique that can evenly distribute the workload to each node in the cluster web server. The proposed technique is based on the hash histogram transformation, in which each URL entry of the web log file is hashed, and the access frequency and file size are accumulated as a histogram. Each user request is assigned into a node by mapping of (hashed value-server node) in the histogram transformation. In the proposed technique, the histogram is updated periodically and then the even distribution of user requests can be maintained continuously. In addition to the load balancing, our technique can exploit the cache effect to improve the performance. The simulation results show that the performance of our technique is quite better than that of the traditional round-robin method and we can improve the performance more than $10\%$ compared with the existing workload-aware load balancing(WARD) method.
