Optimization model for QoS based task scheduling in cloud computing environment

Sirisha Potluri, Katta Subba Rao


Shortest job first task scheduling algorithm allocates task based on the length of the task, i.e the task that will have small execution time will be scheduled first and the longer tasks will be executed later based on system availability. Min- Min algorithm will schedule short tasks parallel and long tasks will follow them. Short tasks will be executed until the system is free to schedule and execute longer tasks. Task Particle optimization model can be used for allocating the tasks in the network of cloud computing network by applying Quality of Service (QoS) to satisfy user’s needs. The tasks are categorized into different groups. Every one group contains the tasks with attributes (types of users and tasks, size and latency of the task). Once the task is allocated to a particular group, scheduler starts assigning these tasks to accessible services. The proposed optimization model includes Resource and load balancing Optimization, Non-linear objective function, Resource allocation model, Queuing Cost Model, Cloud cost estimation model and Task Particle optimization model for task scheduling in cloud computing environement. The main objectives identified are as follows. To propose an efficient task scheduling algorithm which maps the tasks to resources by using a dynamic load based distributed queue for dependent tasks so as to reduce cost, execution and tardiness time and to improve resource utilization and fault tolerance. To develop a multi-objective optimization based VM consolidation technique by considering the precedence of tasks, load balancing and fault tolerance and to aim for efficient resource allocation and performance of data center operations. To achieve a better migration performance model to efficiently model the requirements of memory, networking and task scheduling. To propose a QoS based resource allocation model using fitness function to optimize execution cost, execution time, energy consumption and task rejection ratio and to increase the throughput. QoS parameters such as reliability, availability, degree of imbalance, performance and SLA violation and response time for cloud services can be used to deliver better cloud services.
