DCM: Dynamic Concurrency Management for Scaling n-Tier Applications in Cloud

Hui Chen, Qingyang Wang, Balaji Palanisamy, Pengcheng Xiong
2017 2017 IEEE 37th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS)  
We develop a dynamic concurrency management (DCM) framework which integrates soft resource allocations into the system scaling management.  ...  We implement DCM as a two-level actuator which scales both hardware and soft resources in an n-tier system on the fly without interrupting the runtime system performance.  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation or other funding  ...

Prediction-based VM provisioning and admission control for multi-tier web applications

Adnan Ashraf, Benjamin Byholm, Ivan Porres
2016 Journal of Cloud Computing: Advances, Systems and Applications  
We present a prediction-based, cost-efficient Virtual Machine (VM) provisioning and admission control approach for multi-tier web applications.  ...  It monitors and uses collected resource utilization metrics itself and does not require a performance model of the applications or the infrastructure dynamics.  ...  [29] used control theoretic models to design resource allocation solutions for cloud computing.  ...

Resource overbooking and application profiling in a shared Internet hosting platform

Bhuvan Urgaonkar, Prashant Shenoy, Timothy Roscoe
2009 ACM Transactions on Internet Technology  
In this article, we present techniques for provisioning CPU and network resources in shared Internet hosting platforms running potentially antagonistic third-party applications.  ...  We show how our techniques can be combined with commonly used QoS resource allocation mechanisms to provide application isolation and performance guarantees at run-time.  ...  For instance, modeling only a single bottlenecked tier of a multi-tier application will fail to capture caching effects at other tiers.  ...
