About Visitor Prioritization

The Visitor Prioritization Cloudlet helps maintain business continuity for your dynamic application in high-demand situations. It acts as a front-end shock absorber when peak traffic increases demand for those transactions that require the origin for processing, like shopping cart check-outs, donation pages, service/application subscriptions, and form registrations.


The following diagrams show how Visitor Prioritization works both during normal traffic flow and during times when your application is experiencing a large amount of traffic.

Normal traffic

Application overload

Use case: waiting room pages

What can you do if you want different waiting room pages for different waiting room experiences?

When you configure a Visitor Prioritization instance in Property Manager, you can specify the location of the waiting room asset, which, in effect, allows you to provide different waiting room experiences.
