Abstract: As computational resources become available for use over the Internet a requirement has emerged to reconfigure servers to an optimal allocation to cope with an unpredictable flow of incoming jobs. We describe an architecture that allows the dynamic reconfiguration of servers to process incoming jobs by switching servers between conceptual pools. The system uses heuristic policies to make near optimal switching decisions and a system has been developed to demonstrate the concepts described.
