Resource-efficient workload task scheduling for cloud-assisted internet of things environment

Naveen Kumar Chowdaiah, Annapurna Dammur


One of the most challenging tasks in the internet of things-cloud-based environment is the resource allocation for the tasks. The cloud provides various resources such as virtual machines, computational cores, networks, and other resources for the execution of the various tasks of the internet of things (IoT). Moreover, some methods are used for executing IoT tasks using an optimal resource management system but these methods are not efficient. Hence, in this research, we present a resource-efficient workload task scheduling (RWTS) model for a cloud-assisted IoT environment to execute the IoT task which utilizes few numbers of resources to bring a good tradeoff, achieve high performance using fewer resources of the cloud, compute the number of resources required for the execution of the IoT task such as bandwidth and computational core. Furthermore, this model mainly focuses to reduce energy consumption and also provides a task scheduling model to schedule the IoT tasks in an IoT-cloud-based environment. The experimentation has been done using the Montage workflow and the results have been obtained in terms of execution time, power sum, average power, and energy consumption. When compared with the existing model, the RWTS model performs better when the size of the tasks is increased.
