WWW-based Internet information service has grown enormously during the last few years, and major performance bottlenecks have been caused by WWW server and Internet bandwidth inadequacies. Utilizing client-site computing power and also multi-processor support at the server site can substantially improve the system response time. In this paper, we examine the use of scheduling techniques in monitoring and adapting to workload variation at client and server sites for supporting fast WWW image browsing. We provide both analytic and experimental results to identify the impact of system loads and network bandwidth on response times and demonstrate the effectiveness of our scheduling strategy.
