Design and implementation of an MPLS based load balancing architecture for Web switching

  title={Design and implementation of an MPLS based load balancing architecture for Web switching},
  author={Radu Dragos and Sanda Dragos and Martin Collier},
The WWW has been the preferred technology used to provide information and e-services over the Internet. However, one major limitation of Web servers is that beyond a threshold, the server will not be able to process requests in a timely manner or will reject requests. Addressing this problem requires new architectures such as Web clusters, and new technologies such as Web switching. The current available solutions do not offer end-to-end quality-of-service (QoS) or are cost prohibitive…

An MPLS based architecture for differentiated Web service
This paper has designed and simulated a Web switching architecture for next-generation QoS enabled IP networks, based on a Linux implementation of MPLS, and proposes an MPLS based solution to provide different levels of Web service.
Design and implementation of a Layer-7 MPLS-based Web Switching Architecture
This paper describes a novel web switching architecture, based on the MPLS technology and on Open-Source software, which achieves flexible content-based routing to the most appropriate server by primarily considering Layer-7 information.
Measurement based comparison between VoIPoMPLS and VoIP using software routers
This thesis is dedicated to my parents and my brother and I acknowledge my colleagues and the loving support and encouragement from parents and brother without whom I certainly would not have made it this far.
Session awareness issues for next generation cluster based network load balancing frameworks
The analysis of load balancing scenarios of some representative IP services provides solid reasons to use deep packet inspection to achieve fine grained network traffic load distribution, and to meet NAT and firewall traversal constraints as well.
TE-Friendly Content Delivery Request Routing in a CDN
A CDN architecture that employs a TE-Friendly Request Routing (TFRR) system, which not only distributes the server load but also achieves network efficiency by balancing the path loads and results show that the proposed CDN with the TFRR algorithm achieves both server and traffic load balancing.
A Novel Load Sensitive Algorithm for AP selection in 4 G Networks
An efficient load balancing based AP selection algorithm which considers the direction of advancement of the Mobile Node and hence is able to extract the optimal node for the User Equipment to link up with as it moves.

It is shown that MPLS, when used to bridge the UMTS and 802.11 architectures, reduces the location update of the MN with the core network (CN) by switching the parameters governing forward equivalence class (FEC) generation and redirection in such an MPLS enabled architecture.


Scalable Web Request Routing with MPLS
This approach removes the main bottleneck from the system, and lends itself to realization in a standard MPLS switch, thus obviating the need for costly, specialized layer-7 Web switch hardware while providing the same functions at a much improved price-to-performance ratio.
Distributed packet rewriting and its application to scalable server architectures
It is shown that DPR provides performance comparable to centralized alternatives, measured in terms of throughput and delay, and enhances the scalability of Web server clusters by eliminating the performance bottleneck exhibited when centralized connection routing techniques are utilized.
