Abstract. As information technology grows to the era of IoT (Internet of Things) and cloud computing, the performance of web application and web service which acts as the information gateway becomes an issue. Horizontal quality of service improvement through system performance escalation becomes an issue pursued by engineers and scientists, giving birth to BigPipe pipeline technology which was developed by Facebook. We make SPADOCK, an adaptive pipeline system which is built under distributed system architecture with the utilization of HTML5 WebSocket, then measure its performance. Parameters used for the measurement includes latency, workload, and bandwidth. The result shows that SPADOCK could reduce serving latency by 68.28% compared with the conventional web, and it is 20.63% faster than BigPipe.
