CurrentWeb querying systems are based on a "data shipping" mode wherein data is downloaded from remote sites to the user-site, queries are processed locally against these documents, and then further data is downloaded from the network based on these results. A data shipping approach suffers from several disadvantages, including the transfer of large amounts of unnecessary data resulting in network congestion and poor bandwidth utilization, the client-site becoming a processing bottleneck, and extended user response times due to sequential processing.
