Google's problem

What if the bottleneck of your software isn’t in your CPU, memory, network or I/O throughput, but in that of every website on the internet?

When you encounter a bottleneck you can do a few things. I will list two.

  1. Optimize your software or processes.
  2. Increase the resources that limit the system.

The question is what can you do when your software and processes are optimized and your resources are increased to the point where they don’t limit your system. In other words optimizing software and adding more resources have a negligible effect.

This would create the situation where the speed of every website on the internet is your problem, too.

I don’t know if Google has this problem at the moment, but it would be amazing if they did.
