comment Tool to download only selective pages / particular page from a document !
Okay, So, non-linearity is the bottleneck. I think the following can be opted (This may sound a bit crazy !). It may be better to have future revisions of file formats may need to think about bandwidth usage also. That is, bandwidth usage could be one of the input/requirement factor while designing file formats . If possible the existing file formats can release revised versions of the file formats as linear to support bandwidth also. I am not sure how much of this is possible for various file formats, but i think if not for the existing formats, the future formats should have linearity !

Can you paste the format here so that it could be visualized . Can you share a link that shows few file formats to illustrate the complexity. I think, every file format will have certain header and body and other blocks. The client is going to tell to the server that he needs the XYZ.doc or ABC.ppt . So, in the request itself the file formats are conveyed to the server. The servers job is to just to go the particular offset and start sending the data with its knowledge in file formats. Is going to particular offset and sending the particular page a difficult task ?

Can't we determine the format of document from the first few lines(Mostly called as header of file) of the file format ? (I am just guessing !). If the format is determined that we can easily get the corresponding offsets and other infos in other different areas as per the standard. Is it not possible that way ? Can you show me a model file format here or a link that will show the file format and the complexity in parsing it !

Okay, But, No such interpretors ? I dont think that the tool should open the file to interpret. It should interpret pages by parsing memory layout(hex format) (Just a guess) ! Is it not possible that way ? If that file is located in address 0x20000000 of the server, then assume that page 10 is in location 0x20001000. To print page, it is just as easy as going directly to 0x20001000 location(direct access) and sending the contents till the end of page is present. May be the client can check for the end of page character and intimate the server if that is too much of a burden on the server.

Compared to the restrictions incorporated by windows, doesn't this look less secure in linux ?

comment Exponential backoff algorithm
Thx for the response, but the query is not about the k1. The link conveys the below info - "The figure 51.2μs has been given here as an example. However, 51.2μs could be replaced by any positive value, in practice." I am looking for the optimal value instead of 51.2μs. Any ideas ?
