Consider now non-persistent HTTP with parallel TCP connections. Recall that browsers typically operate in this mode when using HTTP/1.0. Let X denote the maximum number of parallel connections that the client (browser) is permitted to open. In this mode, the client first uses one TCP connection to obtain the base HTML file. Upon receiving the base HTML file, the client establishes M/X sets of TCP connections, with each set having X parallel connections. Argue that the total response time takes the form:
response time = (M+1)O/R + 2(M/X+1) RTT + latency due to slow-start stalling
Compare the contribution of the term involving RTT to that of persistent connections and non-persistent (non-parallel) connections.
