Performance impact of web services on Internet servers

Tian, Min and Voigt, Thiemo and Ritter, Hartmut (2003) Performance impact of web services on Internet servers. In: IASTED International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Systems, 3-5 Nov 2003, Marina Del Rey, California, USA.



While traditional Internet servers mainly served static and later also dynamic content, the popularity of Web services is increasing rapidly. Web services incorporate additional overhead compared to traditional web interaction. This overhead increases the demand on Internet servers which is of particular importance when the request rate to the server is high. We conduct experiments that show that the imposed overhead of Web services is non-negligible during server overload. In our experiments the response time for Web services is more than 30% higher and the server throughput more than 25% lower compared to traditional web interaction using dynamically created HTML pages.
