Locality-aware request distribution in cluster-based network servers
TLDR
We consider cluster-based network servers in which a front-end directs incoming requests to one of a number of back-end nodes in a manner that achieves high locality in the back-ends' main memory caches as well as load balancing. Expand

Cluster reserves: a mechanism for resource management in cluster-based network servers
TLDR
In network (e.g., Web) servers, it is often desirable to isolate the performance of different classes of requests from each other, independent of the load imposed by other requests. Expand

Efficient Support for P-HTTP in Cluster-Based Web Servers
TLDR
We present two mechanisms for the efficient, content-based distribution of HTTP/1.1 requests among the back-end nodes of a cluster server. Expand

TCP: Improving Startup Dynamics by Adaptive Timers and Congestion Control
TLDR
This paper studies the startup dynamics of TCP on both high as low bandwidth-delay network paths and proposes a set of enhancements that improve both the latency as well as throughput of relatively short TCP transfers. Expand
