Resource Efficient Real-time Reliability Model for Multi-Agent IoT Systems

Ivan Eroshkin, Lukas Vojtech, Marek Neruda
2021 IEEE Access  
Virtualised microservices are mostly used in cloud-based IoT systems, which can be covered with multi-agent system (MAS) paradigm.  ...  Then, we evaluate time complexity and provide a measurement to demonstrate the reliability of the model application.  ...  The input metrics are computed as a ratio of successful attempts to all attempts or user expected attempts, which results in the dependency of the input data on history.  ...
