The Web is a distributed client-server system on a scale greater than any other. Its large scale and increasingly important role in society make it an important object of study and evaluation. In recent years a large literature on the performance of the Web has developed. At the time of writing (1999) there are workshops, conferences, journals, and books whose focus is on of performance evaluation of the Web—encompassing protocols, servers and clients [1,2,3,4,5,28].

    • ...Several Web characterization studies have explored the size distribution of URL resources and HTTP messages and showed that average resource sizes are relatively small with an average size of 4 to 8 KB for HTML and 14 KB for images, and a wide variability [4, 7]. Resource-size distribution is typically captured by a hybrid model that describes the body of the distribution with a lognormal and the tail with a heavy tailed (Pareto) ...

    • ...Distribution of Inter-arrival Times Earlier studies have shown that general HTTP traffic is bursty and highly variable, and inter-arrival times of HTTP requests are heavy tailed [7, 4]. To investigate the inter-arrival-time distribution of crawler requests, we process our logs to measure and extract all time-intervals between successive HTTP requests issued by a particular crawler...
