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.
