In recent years, people are shifting from PC's to laptops to smartphones. Services are becoming easy day by day. This will sometimes, leads to poor response time or denial of services from the server. To overcome this situation, multiple server under single name working collectively as a web server cluster.As users are connected in big number and information is shared in big size, the quality of the services needs to be maintained. Web server cluster performance can be enhanced using Load Balancing (LB) mechanism. LB is the process of redistributing the work load within the web servers or among the web server clusters. LB can be done for both homogeneous and heterogeneous systems. While doing LB in heterogeneous systems, there are various issues and challenges that come across. Thus there is a fundamental need to examine these issues. In this paper, we have examined various issues likes scalability, congestion handling, fault tolerance, performance and scheduling of cluster of web servers.
