Black-box inter-application traffic monitoring for adaptive container placement

Francisco Neves, Ricardo Vilaça, José Pereira
2020 Proceedings of the 35th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing  
Although it has been shown that inter-application traffic is an important factor in placement decisions, as it directly indicates how components interact, it has not been possible to accurately monitor  ...  In this paper we present an efficient black-box monitoring approach for detecting and building a weighted communication graph of collaborating processes in a distributed system that can be queried for  ...  a black-box?  ...

VNF and Container Placement: Recent Advances and Future Trends [article]

Wissal Attaoui, Essaid Sabir, Halima Elbiaze, Mohsen Guizani
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this context, the second part of our article focuses on the placement of containers in edge/fog computing.  ...  Hence, there is a need for placement methods that can scale with the issue's complexity and find appropriate solutions in a reasonable duration.  ...  Monitoring inter-application traffic properly without instrumenting the application, required to dynamically determine the appropriate container placement, is difficult to achieve.  ...
