Scheduling HTTP Requests to Improve Response Time for Web Applications

Proposed scheduling strategy allows to reorder the requests queue in such a way that it significantly reduces waiting time in a queue, and as a result significantly improves overall response time per request. Thus under the same load, a server using Alpha scheduling will have shorter queue of requests than a server operating under FIFO scheduling. This leads to better system resources utilization, and as a result to improved system throughput.
