Designing Adaptive Applications Deployed on Cloud Environments

Designing an adaptive system to meet its quality constraints in the face of environmental uncertainties can be a challenging task. In cloud environment, a designer has to also consider and evaluate different control points, i.e., those variables that affect the quality of the software system. This paper presents a methodology for designing adaptive systems in cloud environments. The proposed methodology consists of several phases that take high-level stakeholders' adaptation goals and transform them into lower level MAPE-K loop control points. The MAPE-K loops are then activated at runtime using search-based algorithms. Our methodology includes the elicitation, ranking, and evaluation of control points, all meant to enable a runtime search based adaptation. We conducted several experiments to evaluate the different phases of our methodology and to validate the runtime adaptation efficiency.

Privacy Policy Negotiation in Social Media

Social Media involve many shared items, such as photos, which may concern more than one user. The challenge is that users' individual privacy preferences for the same item may conflict, so an approach that just merges in some way the users' privacy preferences may provide unsatisfactory results. We propose a negotiation mechanism for users to agree on a compromise for the conflicts found. The second challenge we address in this paper relates to the exponential complexity of such a negotiation mechanism. To address this, we propose heuristics that reduce the complexity of the negotiation mechanism and show how substantial benefits can be derived from the use of these heuristics through extensive experimental evaluation that compares the performance of the negotiation mechanism with and without these heuristics. Moreover, we show that one such heuristic makes the negotiation mechanism produce results fast enough to be used in actual Social Media infrastructures with near-optimal results.

Using Imitation to build Collaborative Agents

The paper presents an approach to learn collaborative strategies among multiple agents via imitation. Imitation based learning involves learning from an expert by observing her demonstrating a task and then replicating it. This mechanism makes it convenient for a knowledge engineer to transfer knowledge to a software agent. This paper applies imitation to learn not only the strategy of an individual agent but also the collaborative strategy of a team of agents to achieve a common goal. The paper presents an imitation based solution that learns a weighted naïve Bayes structure whereas the weights of the model are optimized using Artificial Immune Systems. The learned model is then used by agents to act autonomously. The applicability of the presented approach is assessed in the RoboCup Soccer Simulation 3D environment which is a promising platform to address many complex real-world problems. The performance of the trained agents is benchmarked against other RoboCup Soccer Simulation 3D teams. In addition to performance characteristics, the research also analyses the behavioral traits of the imitating team to assess how closely they are imitating the demonstrating team.

Enhancing Reliability of Workflow Execution Using Task Replication and Spot Instances

Cloud environments offer low-cost computing resources as a subscription-based service. These resources are elastically scalable and dynamically provisioned. Furthermore, cloud providers have also pioneered new pricing models like spot instances that are cost-effective. As a result, scientific workflows are increasingly adopting cloud computing. However, spot instances are terminated when the market price exceeds the users bid price. Likewise, cloud is not a utopian environment. Failures are inevitable in such large complex distributed systems. It is also well studied that cloud resources experience fluctuations in the delivered performance. These challenges make fault-tolerance an important criterion in workflow scheduling. This paper presents an adaptive, just-in time scheduling algorithm for scientific workflows. This algorithm judiciously uses both spot and on-demand instances to reduce cost and provide fault-tolerance. The proposed scheduling algorithm also consolidates resources to further minimize execution time and cost. Extensive simulations show that the proposed heuristics are fault-tolerant and are effective, especially under short deadlines, providing robust schedules with minimal makespan and cost.

An Auction Mechanism for Cloud Spot Markets

Dynamic forms of resource pricing have recently been introduced by cloud providers that offer Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) capabilities, in order to maximize profit and balance resource supply and demand. The design of a mechanism that efficiently prices perishable cloud resources in line with a provider's profit maximization goal remains an open research challenge however. In this paper, we propose the Online Extended Consensus Revenue Estimate mechanism to the setting of a recurrent, multi-unit and single price auction for IaaS cloud resources. The mechanism is envy-free, has a high probability of being truthful, and generates a near optimal profit for the provider. We combine the proposed auction design with a scheme for dynamically calculating reserve prices based on data center Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and electricity costs. Our simulation-based evaluation of the mechanism demonstrates its effectiveness under a broad variety of market conditions. In particular, we show how it improves on the classical uniform price auction and investigate the value of prior knowledge on the execution time of virtual machines, for maximizing profit.

Connectivity Re-establishment for Self-organization of Wireless Sensor Networks in the Presence of Dumb Nodes

In this work, we propose a scheme, named CoRAD, for the re-establishment of lost connectivity in the presence of dumb nodes in stationary wireless sensor networks (WSNs). A sensor node is termed as dumb, when it can sense its surroundings, but cannot communicate with its neighbors due to shrinkage in communication range attributed to adverse environmental effects such as rainfall, fog, and high temperature. These nodes behave normally following the resumption of favorable environmental conditions. Therefore, the presence of dumb nodes in a network gives rise to lost connectivity between the nodes, which are temporary in nature, and, thus, are distinct from the traditional isolation problem considered in stationary WSNs. We propose a price-based scheme that helps the network to self-organize and re-connects the isolated nodes by activating some intermediate sleep nodes. The scheme increases the communication range of nodes, when there is no neighbor node in the reduced communication range. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme exhibits improved performance over the existing topology management schemes such as LETC and A1, in such scenarios with respect to the number of activated nodes, message overhead, and energy consumption.

Managing Server Clusters on Renewable Energy Mix

As climate change has become a global concern and server energy demand continues to soar, many IT companies start to explore server clusters running on various renewable energy sources. Traditional data center designs are often workload-driven, and consequently ignore the interplay between power supply and computing system. Emerging green data centers often yield sub-optimal performance as they only look at a certain specific type of energy source. This paper explores data centers powered by hybrid renewable energy systems. We propose GreenWorks, a framework for HPC data centers running on renewable energy mix. Specifically, GreenWorks features a cross-layer power management scheme tailored to the timing behaviors and capacity constraints of different energy sources. Using realistic workload traces and renewable energy data, we show that GreenWorks could provide a near-optimal workload performance (within 3% difference) on average. It can also reduce the worst-case performance degradation by 43% compared to the state-of-the-art design. More importantly, the performance improvements are based on carbon-neutral operations, and are not at the cost of significant efficiency degradation and reduced battery lifecycle. Our technique becomes more efficient when servers become more energy-proportional and could effectively handle the ever-increasing depth of renewable power penetration in green data centers.

User-centric Adaptation Analysis of Multi-tenant Services

Multi-tenancy is a key pillar of cloud services. It allows different users to share computing and virtual resources transparently, meanwhile guaranteeing substantial cost savings. However, due to the tradeoff between scalability and customisation, one of the major drawbacks of multi-tenancy is lack of configurability. Since users may often have conflicting configuration preferences, offering the best user experience is an open challenge for service providers. Besides, users, their preferences and the operational environment may change during the service operation, jeopardising the satisfaction of users' preferences. In this paper we present an approach to support user-centric adaptation of multi-tenant services. We describe how to engineer the activities of the MAPE (Monitoring, Analysis, Planning, Execution) loop to support user-centric adaptation, and tackle changes in the user and provider sides. We focus on the adaptation analysis, which computes a service reconfiguration that maximises users' preferences satisfaction, and the required infrastructure to handle those specific users. The analysis also considers the obtrusiveness of a candidate reconfiguration before applying it at runtime. We illustrate our approach by utilising different cases of virtualised desktops. Obtained experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the analysis in improving users' preferences satisfaction.

Self-stabilized fast gossiping algorithms

In this paper we explore the topic of extending aggregate computation in distributed networks with self-stabilizing properties, to withstand network dynamics. Existing research suggests that fast gossiping algorithms, based on the properties of order statistics applied to families of exponential random variables, are a viable solution for computing functions of the values stored in the network. We focus on the specific case in which network changes and failures occur in batches, with a minimum frequency in the order of the diameter of the network. Our contribution consists in two self-stabilizing mechanisms, allowing fast gossiping algorithms to be applicable, with minimum extension and resources usage, to dynamic networks. The resulting algorithms can be deployed in networks exhibiting churn, node stop-failures and resets, and random topological changes. The theoretical results are verified with simulations on synthetic data, showcasing desirable properties for large-scale network designers, such as scalability, lack of single points of failure and anonymity.

Analyzing Latency-aware Self-adaptation using Stochastic Games and Simulations

Self-adaptive systems must decide which adaptations to apply and when. In proactive approaches, predictions are used to prepare the system for some future event (e.g., traffic spikes). The choice of adaptation is based on the estimated impact it will have on the system. Current decision-making approaches assume that the impact will be instantaneous, whereas adaptations commonly take time to produce their impact. Ignoring this latency is problematic because adaptations may not achieve their effect in time for a predicted event, or lower-impact but quicker adaptations may be ignored altogether when over time, the accrued impact may actually be higher. In this paper we introduce a novel approach to choosing adaptations that considers these latencies. To show that this is an improvement, we use a novel combination of (i) model checking of stochastic multiplayer games (SMGs) to analyze best- and worst-case scenarios of adaptation without the need to develop specific algorithms and (ii) simulations of a specific latency-aware adaptation algorithm to make decisions at runtime to check if the performance of the algorithm falls within the bounds predicted by SMGs. Our results show that latency awareness improves adaptation outcomes, and also allows a larger set of adaptations to be exploited.

Just-in-Time Adaptive Algorithm for Optimal Parameter Setting in 802.15.4 WSNs

Recent studies have shown that the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC protocol suffers from severe limitations, in terms of reliability and energy efficiency, when the CSMA/CA parameters setting is not appropriate. However, selecting the optimal setting that guarantees the application reliability requirements, with minimum energy consumption, is not a trivial task in real sensor networks, especially when the operating conditions change over time. In this paper we propose a Just-in-Time LEarning-based Adaptive Parameter tuning (JIT-LEAP) algorithm that adapts the CSMA/CA parameters setting to the time-varying operating conditions by exploiting the past history to find the most appropriate setting for the current conditions. Following the approach of active adaptive algorithms, the adaptation mechanism of JIT-LEAP is triggered by a change detection test only when needed (i.e., in response to a change in the operating conditions). Simulation experiments show that the proposed algorithm outperforms other similar algorithms, both in stationary and dynamic scenarios.

Introduction to the Special Section on Best Papers from SEAMS 2014


Interaction between agents is one of the key factors in Multi-Agent societies. Using interaction, agents communicate with each other and cooperatively execute complex tasks which are beyond the capability of a single agent. Cooperatively executing tasks may endanger the success of an agent if it attempts to cooperate with peers that are not proficient. Therefore, agents need to have an evaluation mechanism to select peers for cooperation. Trust is one of the measures commonly used to evaluate the effectiveness of agents in cooperative societies. Since all interactions are subject to uncertainty, the risk behavior of agents as a contextual factor needs to be taken into account in decision making. In this research, we propose the concept of adaptive risk and agents strategy along with an algorithm which helps agents to make decisions in an self-adaptive society utilizing recommendation-based trust. Trust-based decision making increases the profit of the system along with lower task failure in comparison with no-trust model which agents do not utilize evaluation mechanisms for choosing their cooperation peers.
