Title: Network system, network system control method, and storage medium

Abstract: A network system includes a first processing unit configured to accept a request transmitted from a client computer and register a job that processes the accepted request into a storage unit. The first processing unit includes one or a plurality of processing units. The network system further includes a second processing unit configured to acquire the job from the storage unit asynchronously with the job being registered into the storage unit and process the acquired job.
