dc.description.abstract With the ever-growing web traffic, cluster-based web servers have become very important to the Internet infrastructure. Thus, making the best use of all available resources in the cluster to achieve high performance is a significant research issue. In this paper, we present Weblins, a cluster-based web server that can achieve good throughput. Weblins has Gobelins operating system as platform. Gobelins is an efficient single system image operating system that transparently makes use of the resources available in the cluster. The architecture of Weblins is fully distributed. Weblins implements a content-aware request distribution policy via a new interface on top of Gobelins. Popular web files are dynamically replicated on all nodes via a cooperative caching mechanism. For the non-popular files, the requests are handed-off to the corresponding nodes via the TCP Handoff protocol. Simulation results show that the strategy used by Weblins is more suitable for cluster-based Web severs in comparison with pure content-aware strategy and pure cooperative caching strategy. en_US
