The growth of traffic on the Internet and the explosion in the number of Web sites created in recent years make Web server performance an important issue for Web site designers. To improve the server's performance, it is necessary to determine the main factors affecting it before proposing new solutions for Web server design. Here we first present some experimental results on factors which influence Web server performance. We show how the number of concurrent clients accessing the server and the overall network traffic dynamics affect the performance. The details of a Web page’s composition are also studied to determine their effect on performance. Then we describe a new approach for developing a Web server,in which the server takes its performance as the clients see it into account and dynamically generates the requested Web pages. Their content depends on the traffic conditions and client capabilities. Some results are described to show the feasibility of our proposed design.
