Queueing Theory is perhaps one of the most important mathematical theories in systems design and analysis, yet only few engineers master it. This webinar introduces the basics of queueing theory and explores the ramifications of queue behaviors and variance on system performance and resiliency. The session will also cover example use cases across modern application development, from NGINX and Jetty to Scylla’s own use of queuing theory.
