Dynamic server selection is one of basic approaches to improve the quality of distributed network services over the Internet. Even though several mechanisms have been proposed, they have a number of drawbacks when applying them to an enterprise network. The authors proposed a server-based mechanism to help clients find better servers for its requests. Several server selection algorithms are proposed in this paper and tested with simulators, which are built on LBNL Network Simulator Version 2. The simulation results show that the mechanism and the algorithms are very promising. Compared with previous approaches, our approach is the first one which emphasizes both of passive measurement and server-based.
