Each server has a capacity to serve its clients and if the number of clients exceeds the threshold, the server can hold the services. In other words a server cannot bear the load of clients and it will eventually break down.
- Shedding load – Each clients of the website is using it for different purposes and the usage of some clients is limited and others use them heavily. The server cannot offer imbalance load to the clients and when someone asks for more loads, his request will be rejected.
- Retry – A client does not know whether the particular is not working only for him or for all others using it. He used to start reloading the page but how many times he reloads, he cannot get the page and it cannot be reloaded by the server.
- Bad dependency – Sometimes a sever goes down and it is because of the fact that its dependencies are not working. If the input or output system fails to work in that application or server, then the requests from the clients will be piled up. When there are more requests to process, the server may get overload and stops working.
