Resource Management in Cluster Based Network Servers

Authors(2) :-V. Hema, Dr. K. Kungumaraj

A cluster consists of a set of loosely or tightly connected computers that work together. Clusters have each node set to perform the same task, controlled and scheduled by software. . Clustering is used for parallel processing , load balancing and fault tolerance. A server cluster is a collection of servers, called nodes that communicate with each other to make a set of services highly available to clients. Each node consists of several resources. Our objective is to deliver better services to high priority request classes without over-sacrificing low priority classes. Thus effective utilization of server resources is necessary. It is often desirable to isolate the performance of different classes of requests. Resource management methods are necessary for ensuring performance isolation while enabling high utilization of the server resources.
