3 Interesting Facts About Using Azure Service Bus
Running an enterprise business is all about keeping up with the expectations of customers and meeting the supply demands in time. What customers of this century care about most is time! This is why effective queue management is crucial to automate customer flow. Plus, if employees stay occupied to organize the queue, this can lead to a sheer drop in staff’s productivity. An effectively managed queue can promise customer loyalty and improved services.
The true efficiency of an enterprise business can be measured by the rate by which the random walk-in customers are turned into potential customers. But it may happen that many customers don’t complete their purchase and leave the queue. The queue management systems are designed to improve the waiting experience by centralizing the information flow. This means that the customer will be certain about how much he has to wait and the staff would also be aware of the customer’s needs and specifics which streamlines many aspects of the queue.
To develop an effective queue management system, queue mechanisms are applied to the enterprise business. Either a single-channeled system or a multi-channeled system can be used based on the availability of servers. To figure out which customer do you need to serve next considering the behavior of customers, the queue mechanisms are found helpful. Usually, there are five queue mechanisms that are practiced; FIFO (First In First Out), Priority Queuing (PQ), Custom Queuing (CQ), Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ), Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ), and Low-Latency Queuing (LLQ).
FIFO is probably the most primitive and simple form of queuing mechanism. This mechanism is based on the popular enterprise expression: first come first serve. Those who come first in the queue are dealt first and the rest are put to the waiting and don’t get served until the previous ones are finished being in the queue. While Priority Queueing responds to the significant customers first. This mechanism discriminates in view of packet source, packet destination, its type, label, and so on to channelize and regulate the traffic flows. The biggest drawback associated with PQ mechanism is the high volumes of prioritized traffic which leaves the low-prioritized traffic completely neglected.
You can manage your business operations in a more effective, pragmatic, and profound way
Weighted Fair Queuing renders two significant benefits; it supports variable-length packets and it offers impartial queuing which splits the available bandwidth across queues of traffic, based on weights. This is by no doubt an effective queuing mechanism that resolves the issue of low prioritized traffic being neglected as WFQ assigns each queue a weight which makes flows with different bandwidth requirements possible. But if a correct, befitting, and a compatible queuing mechanism is chosen successfully for your enterprise business, then you can manage your business operations in a more effective, pragmatic, and profound way, garnering more sales and consequently become more successful.
