Title: A MULTI-CLIENT/MULTI-SERVER MANAGING METHOD AND SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method for managing a multi-client/multi-server system or network (1) is disclosed. According to some embodiments, the method comprises the following steps: when at least one of the servers (3) receives a request for connection from one of the clients (5), the server (3) calculates a figure of merit (FoM) for the requesting client; the server (3) sends a connection-accepting response to the requesting client (5) with a probability, which depends upon the figure of merit; the requesting client (5) receiving a connection-accepting response joins the server (3) and starts communication therewith.
