    Abstract: In this paper we report our practical experience in benchmarking a System Biology Web Service, and investigate instability of its performance and the delays induced by the communication medium. We discuss the results of a statistical data analysis and discuss the causes affecting the Web Service performance. The uncertainty discovered in Web Services operations reduces the overall dependability of Service-Oriented Architecture and require specific resilience techniques.
