The explosive growth of the Internet, the widespread use of WWW-related applications, and the increased reliance on client-server architectures places interesting new demands on network servers. In particular, the operating system running on such systems needs to manage the machine’s resources in a manner that maximizes and maintains throughput under conditions of high load.
