<p>Workload measurement, characterization, and modeling are key steps toward the design, planning, and management of both new and maturing Internet applications and services. However, the emergence of several new applications (such as online social networking) and the explosive growth in popularity of others (such as e-business, online auction, and streaming), most of which have workloads with unique, nontrivial, and yet not fully understood fundamental properties, make this a research topic of timely relevance. This special issue brings three articles that characterize and model workloads of different types, covering currently popular applications, and contributing to our understanding of the characteristics of modern Internet workloads.</p>
