Overload control is a challenging problem for web-based applications, which are often prone to unexpected surges of traffic. Existing solutions are still far from guaranteeing the necessary responsiveness under rapidly changing operative conditions. We contribute an original Self-* Overload Control (SOC) algorithm that self-configures a dynamic constraint… CONTINUE READING
