Performance-directed site selection system of AADMLSS
In this project, a performance-directed site selection system was developed for a web-based application called AADMLSS (African American Distributed Multiple Learning Styles System). Four different sets of experiments were conducted in this study. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the test system, two other server selection methods, Load-based and Random-based methods, were implemented for comparative purposes. The experiments were also run during daytime and
nighttime to see the impact of network load on the response time.
Experimental results indicate that the performance-directed site selection system outperforms the Load-based and Random-based methods
consistently. The response time is typically high during daytime and low during nighttime, indicating that the network load has an impact on the response time delivered. The results also show that server performance contributes to the overall response time, and network performance is the more dominating factor in determining a good resource site for the user.
