Abstract

Presents inexpensive ways to implement a virtual parallel computer with multiple Web servers. "Servlets" are used instead of CGI programs. Compares the multiple Web server model with a multiple-client model. Experiments are conducted to test the performance of these two parallel systems. The performance of these two models is then compared. The advantages and limitations of these models are also discussed.
