I would be interested in comments regarding the trade-off of using
pipelining. My thoughts on this are that it is great because it relieves the
burden on the server of having to open a TCP connection for each request for
an object but the trade-off is that the requests have to be sent/received in
order. This seems to me to override the benefits of multi-threading. If I
was to send multiple GETs at the same time I would open multiple connections
but the requests could be processed concurrently.
