English term or phrase:scale poorly
CONTEXTO: (en un entorno de proceso multitarea):
When short operations are blocked by long ones, productivity suffers and user frustration rises. Components that behave in this fashion are said to scale poorly. That is, they work poorly if many requests of mixed length are made.
... Se dice que los componentes que se comportan de este modo tienen poca capacidad de ampliación. Es decir, funcionan con dificultad si se presentan muchas solicitudes de variada longitud.
