Performance Guarantees for Cluster-Based Internet Services
As web-based transactions become an essential element of everyday corporate and commerce activities, it becomes increasingly important that the performance of web-based services be predictable and guaranteed even in the presence of wildly fluctuating input loads. In this paper, we propose a general implementation framework to provide quality of service (QoS) guarantee for cluster-based Internet services, such as E-commerce or directory service. We describe the design, implementation, and evaluation of a web request distribution system called Gage, which can provide every subscriber with distinct guarantee on the number of generic web requests that are serviced per second regardless of the total input loads at run time. Gage is one of the first systems that can support QoS guarantee involving multiple system resources, i.e., CPU, disk, and network. The frontend request distribution server of Gage distributes incoming requests among a cluster of back-end web server nodes so as to main...
