Abstract

The usage of the internet has increased rapidly from the past few years. Thus it automatically increases the internet traffic. In the internet, a web server always responds to the client or web browser's requests. The major feature of a web server is to be available, scalable and predictable. So the core part to be concentrated is web server load balancing. Load balancing plays a vital role in allocating the jobs to the web server based on its status. There are various policies available for web server load balancing. Each of these policies came into existence based on the certain needs. In this paper, we have examined the latest policies of web server load balancing.
