Web site scalability depends on several things - workload characteristics, security mechanisms, Web cluster architectures as we discussed previously. Another important item that can affect a site's performance and scalability is the Web server software architecture. We provide a classification of Web server architectures, offer a quantitative analysis of some possible software architectural options, and discuss the importance of software contention on overall response time.
