The OASIS standard Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) enables the use of Web services for service-oriented and event-driven Internet of Things (IoT) applications. DPWS has been proven to be an appropriate technology for implementing services on resource-constrained devices. However, the performance of these services has not been well investigated to realize DPWS features such as dynamic discovery and eventing mechanisms for IoT scenarios. Moreover, DPWS introduces considerable overhead due
