Performance and Reliability


Performance and reliability are ongoing issues as the Web continues to grow in its diversity of applications. This area seeks papers related to Web performance, reliability, and scalability for both traditional Web content and newer applications. Generally, papers related to performance and scalability issues for the Web should be sent to the performance/reliability track, while those focusing on application issues for the Web should be send to the Applications track.

The relevant topics include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • Availability, fault tolerance, and reliability
  • Caching and replication
  • Content-aware routing
  • Content distribution
  • Edge services
  • Load balancing and resource allocation
  • Overlay networks
  • Protocol compliance and robustness
  • Quality of service and service level agreements
  • Scalability
  • Server and proxy performance
  • Traffic characterization and capacity planning
  • Web Performance Modeling
