"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I guess you're talking about architectural patterns. Most common I'd say are:

1) master-slave, the workload is divided among replicas and coordinated by master(s).
2) broker, the workload is distributed among several decoupled components. The broker coordinates the whole process.
3) peer to peer, individual components know about other individual components and act both as client/server.
4) event bus, sources emit events and though a bus and channels listeners (that subscribe for specific events) consume these events.
5) pipe-filter, this is essentially a messaging pattern. Data is passed through pipes and end up in components called filters. Each filter then processes the data and passes it to another filter via pipes.
6) MVC
