We propose DotSlash, a self-configuring and scalable rescue system, for handling web hotspots at dynamic content Web sites. To support load migration for dynamic content, an origin Web server sets up needed rescue servers drafted from other Web sites on the fly, and those rescue servers retrieve the scripts dynamically from the origin Web server, cache the scripts locally, and access the corresponding database server directly. We have implemented a prototype of DotSlash for the LAMP configuration, and tested our implementation using the RUBBoS bulletin board benchmark. Experiments show that by using DotSlash a dynamic content web site can completely remove its web server bottleneck, and can support a request rate constrained only by the capacity of its database server.
