Synopsis

In 1999, slow E-commerce sites cost their owners $44 billion in lost revenue -- and site failures have embarrassed companies from Britannica to eBay, Victoria's Secret to Charles Schwab. In Scaling for e-Business, two of the world's leading Web performance experts present powerful techniques for characterizing, predicting, anticipating, and addressing every aspect of E-commerce site performance. Scaling for e-Business demonstrates how to characterize E-commerce workloads more accurately than any book published yet. It clearly demonstrates techniques for analyzing the performance of authentication and payment services; modeling contention for software servers; modeling and planning for communications infrastructure; and most importantly, forecasting and addressing peak demand. Finally, the Web/E-Commerce developer will discover how to evaluate and project the long-term impact of changes in his/her site visitor profile -- even the growth of non-PC devices and traffic from "intelligent agents" such as comparative shopping bots.
