Performance Analysis of Service in Heterogeneous Operational Environments

University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för kommunikationssystem

Abstract: Context. In recent years there is a rapid increase in demand for cloud services, as cloud computing has become a flexible platform for hosting micro services over the Internet.~Micro services are the core elements of service oriented architecture (SOA) that facilitate the deployment of distributed software systems.  Objectives. This thesis work aims at developing a typical service architecture to facilitate the deployment of compute and I/O intensive services. The thesis work also aims at evaluating the service times of these services when their respective sub services are deployed in heterogeneous environments with various loads. Methods. The thesis work has been carried out using an experimental test bed in order to evaluate the performance. The transport level performance metric called Response time is measured. It is the time taken by the server to serve the request sent by the client. Experiments have been conducted based on the objectives that are to be achieved. Results. The results obtained from the experimentation contain the average service times of a service when it is deployed on both virtual and non-virtual environments. The virtual environment is provided by Docker containers. They also include the variation in the position of their sub services. Conclusions. From results, it can be concluded that the total service times obtained are less in the case of non-virtual environment when compared to container environment.
