In this paper, the authors consider a challenging class of so-called Real-time Online Interactive Applications (ROIAs); popular examples include multi-player online computer games, e-learning and training based on real-time simulations. ROIA combine high demands on scalability and real-time user interactivity with the problem of an efficient and economic utilization of resources with heterogeneous network capabilities. This paper proposes a generic scalability model for ROIA that analyzes the application performance during runtime and predicts the demand for load balancing.
