Hybrid Starling Social Spider Algorithm for Energy and Load Aware Task Scheduling in Cloud Computing

2019 VOLUME-8 ISSUE-10, AUGUST 2019, REGULAR ISSUE  
The efficiency of the cloud-based systems is greatly relying on the task scheduling algorithm which affects the performance parameters such as makespan, response time, degree of imbalance and cost. In recent years, the energy efficiency is also considered as another challenging issue which affects the efficiency of cloud computing systems. This paper proposes a Hybrid Starling Social Spider Algorithm (Starling-SSA) for Energy and Load Aware Task Scheduling in cloud computing. The Starling-SSA

The foraging behavior of spider is implemented to identify the best VMs for the given task with minimum makespan and degree of imbalance. In addition to this, the distance factor is incorporated inspired by starling flock distance in order identify the closeness of VM pairs and avoids the VMs that are far away, thereby VMs can be limited during the searching process. This will greatly reduce energy consumption by taking only VMs that are belongs to the distance factor. The performance metrics such as makespan, degree of imbalance and energy efficiency are evaluated against the existing algorithms such as EATS, CBAT and HC-ACO. The results presents a significant improvements when comparing to the existing algorithms
