Abstract
(EN)
A system includes at least one server that is configured to provide a multi-client network service to a plurality of existing users. When the server receives requests to join the multi-client network service from new users, the server may issue timestamps to each new user and obtain load metric based on the requests or timestamps. The server can repeatedly compare the load metric to a threshold load value. When it is determined that the load metric does not meet or is below the threshold load value, the server enables joining the multi-client network service by the plurality of new users. Otherwise, when it is determined that the load metric meets or is above the threshold load value, the server causes delivery of a wait message to the new users and keeps them in a wait mode for a predetermined period or until the load metric changes.

Un système comprend au moins un serveur qui est configuré pour fournir un service de réseau multiclient à une pluralité d'utilisateurs existants. Lorsque le serveur reçoit des requêtes demandant à se joindre au service de réseau multiclient en provenance de nouveaux utilisateurs, le serveur peut délivrer des estampilles temporelles à chaque nouvel utilisateur et obtenir une mesure de charge sur la base des requêtes ou des estampilles temporelles. Le serveur peut comparer de manière répétée la métrique de charge à une valeur de charge seuil. Lorsqu'il est déterminé que la métrique de charge ne satisfait pas ou est inférieure à la valeur de charge seuil, le serveur permet à la pluralité de nouveaux utilisateurs de se joindre au service de réseau multiclient. Sinon, lorsqu'il est déterminé que la métrique de charge satisfait ou est supérieure à la valeur de charge seuil, le serveur provoque l'envoi d'un message d'attente aux nouveaux utilisateurs et les maintient dans un mode d'attente pendant une période prédéterminée ou jusqu'à ce que la métrique de charge change.
