A system for serving web pages manages a plurality of web servers. The system provides an operator with features and tools to coordinate the operation of the multiple web servers. The system can manage traffic by directing web page requests to available web servers and balancing the web page request service load among the multiple servers. The system can collect data on web page requests and web server responses to those web page requests, and provide reporting of the data as well as automatic and manual analysis tools. The system can monitor for specific events, and can act automatically upon the occurrence of such events. The events can include predictions or thresholds that indicate impending system crises. The system can include crisis management capability to provide automatic error recovery, and to guide a system operator through the possible actions that can be taken to recover from events such as component failure or network environment problems. The system can present current information about the system operation to a system operator. The system can manage content replication.
