Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 363)


In this paper innovative web admission auction-based algorithms are presented combined with load-balancing and QoS characteristics. Performance indexes as income of the web service or client satisfaction is discussed. Simulation experiments have been performed to validate the proposed mechanisms. They showed benefits of our developments.
