distwww, the distributed web server

distwww is an experimental distributed web server. It consists of two pieces of software: the slave server and the master server. The master server handles incoming requests by farming them out to slaves based on their proximity to the client and their current load.

At this stage we have built the slave server and are beginning work on the master. Take a look in CVS for a better idea of where we're at, and also visit our project page.

We currently need PHP developers and donations of hardware to test the distributed web serving on—if you can help out in either of these areas then please contact me (Jasper Bryant-Greene, lead developer).
