Subject Re: [users@httpd] How do I prioritize requests ?

  If you have no idea how to prioritize the requests, then I doubt you'll
get much help.  Prioritization of "requests" can happen in the router, a
load balancer or the actual webserver.

  For instance, if requests from certain IP addresses have a higher
priority (for example) then one could implement QoS (Quality of Service) at
the router level (allow traffic through unimpeeded from priority IP
addresses, otherwise cap bandwidth/connections from non-priority IP
addresses---but such configuration is beyond the scope of this list).  

  A load balancer could probably be configured to act simularly with respect
to IP addresses; throw in a proxy server and you might be able to configure
it based upon the URL (or both IP and URL).  

If you are asking "Is this possible?"  the answer is "Yes." [1].    But
without an idea of what you need to prioritize on you are wasting your
time [3].
