Request scheduling as in queuing with priority, QoS?

Meaning, one or more location should have a higher priority in
completing the request, by going into the front of the queue?

For example, you have 1000 requests per second, and 10 of them are for
the location /realtime.jpg, and you want those requests to jump in front
of the queue and return the responses ASAP?
