The explosive growth of the World Wide Web has raised great concerns regarding many challenges - performance, scalability and availability of the Web system. Consequently, Web site builders are increasingly to construct their Web servers as distributed system for solving these problems, and this trend is likely to accelerate. In such systems, a group of looselycoupled hosts will work together to serve as a single virtual server. Although the distributed server can provide compelling performance and accommodate the growth of web traffic, it inevitably increases the complexity of system administration. In this paper, we exploit the advantages of Java to design and implement an administration system for addressing this challenging problem.
