[seul-edu] Linux in education report #95 for May 5
Malcolm Smith reminded us of XASS, and what it's intended to do. As he
If you have multiple servers, these can be used to host graphical, X11
applications that are displayed on a large number of clients. XASS means
that the client will request an application to be run on any of the
servers, without being tied to a specific one. Loadbalancing code should
(theoretically) ensure much more efficient resource utilisation, as a
server that is fast to respond and doing relatively little will be used
in preference to one that takes a long time to respond or is busy.
We can see where this could be very useful in a scholastic environment.
