In  we present the first analysis of Join-the-Shortest-Queue (JSQ) routing in Web server farms, with Processor-Sharing (PS) servers. Please see that paper for details about the JSQ routing policy and its analysis, and for the relevant references. The analytical work in  was backed up by many simulation experiments, not all of which made it into the paper. This document is meant to serve as an online supplement to , providing the full set of simulation results and comparisons with analytical results. We hope that these will be useful for those who wish to extend our work on this problem.
