model of distributed computing based upon a passive service provider or server waiting to receive requests from one or more active service consumers or clients to which it responds by providing service.
A common way to describenetwork services and the model user processes (programs) of those services. Examples include the name-server/name-resolver paradigm of the DNS and file- server/file-client relationships such as NFS and diskless hosts.
A configuration in which one computer, designated as a "server", sends information to a number of other "client" computers.
A common way to describe the paradigm of many network protocols involving a relationship designed to share processing and related functions between a host computing device and a client computing device. Examples include the name-server/name-resolver relationship in DNS (Domain Name System).
A method of implementing application programs and operating system services which divides them into one of more client programs whose requests for service are satisfied by one or more server programs. The client-server model is suitable for implementing applications in a networked computer environment. Examples of application of the client-server model are: page serving to diskless clients file serving using NFS and NUCFS Domain Name Service (DNS) the X Window System many relational database management systems (RDBMSs)
The most commonly used paradigm when writing distributed applications is the client-server model. In this scheme, clients request services from a window server process. The client and server require a protocol that must be implemented at both ends of a connection. The OpenWindows server implements the X11 protocol.
The model used for many popular Internet software tools. The client sends a request to the server and receives and displays the information.
Describes the relationship between two computer programs in which one program, the client, makes a service request from another program, the server, which fulfills the request.
A common way to describe the paradigm of many network protocols. Examples include the name-server/name-resolver relationship in DNS and the file-server/file-client relationship in NFS. See also: client, server, Domain Name System, Network File System.
A common way to describe network services and the model user processes (programs) of those services. Examples include the nameserver/nameresolver paradigm of the DNS and fileserver/file-client relationships such as NFS and diskless hosts.
