Joint QoS-aware and Cost-efficient Task Scheduling for Fog-Cloud Resources in a Volunteer Computing System

04/28/2021 ∙ by Farooq Hoseiny, et al. ∙ 0

Volunteer computing is an Internet-based distributed computing system in which volunteers share their extra available resources to manage large-scale tasks. However, computing devices in a Volunteer Computing System (VCS) are highly dynamic and heterogeneous in terms of their processing power, monetary cost, and data transferring latency. To ensure both the high Quality of Service (QoS) and low cost for different requests, all of the available computing resources must be used efficiently. Task scheduling is an NP-hard problem that is considered one of the main critical challenges in a heterogeneous VCS. Due to this, in this paper, we design two task scheduling algorithms for VCSs, named Min-CCV and Min-V. The main goal of the proposed algorithms is jointly minimizing the computation, communication and delay violation cost for the Internet of Things (IoT) requests. Our extensive simulation results show that proposed algorithms are able to allocate tasks to volunteer fog/cloud resources more efficiently than the state-of-the-art. Specifically, our algorithms improve the deadline satisfaction task rates by around 99.5 total cost between 15 to 53
