Title (EN) AN IMPROVED METHOD FOR PROVIDING AN INTERNET PROTOCOL ADDRESS WITH A DOMAIN NAME SERVER
(FR) PROCEDE AMELIORE DE PRODUCTION D'UNE ADRESSE DE PROTOCOLE INTERNET AVEC UN SERVEUR DE NOM DE DOMAINE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for providing Internet protocol (IP) addresses with a domain name server (DNS) for multiple web servers of an Internet host. In one embodiment, each web server of an Internet host having multiple web servers is assigned a relative weight based on the individual processing power of the particular web server. As DNS resolution requests are received (301) from client domains, the DNS returns (303) IP addresses for the web servers such that the total number of times that each IP address of the web server is returned is proportional to the relative weight of each server relative to the total weight of all the servers.
(FR) On décrit un procédé de production d'adresses de protocole Internet (IP) avec un serveur de nom de domaine (DNS) pour plusieurs serveurs du réseau d'un hôte Internet. Dans une forme de réalisation chaque serveur de réseau d'un hôte Internet comprenant plusieurs serveurs de réseau reçoit une pondération relative fondée sur la puissance de traitement individuel du serveur de réseau particulier. Lorsque les demandes de résolutions de DNS sont reçues (301) en provenance de domaines de clients, le DNS renvoie (303) des adresses IP pour les serveurs de réseau de telle sorte que le nombre total de fois que chaque adresse IP du serveur web est renvoyée soit proportionnel à la pondération relative de chaque serveur par rapport à la pondération totale de tous les serveurs.
