A Universal Fairness Evaluation Framework for Resource Allocation in Cloud Computing
Abstract— In cloud computing, fairness is one of the most significant indicators to evaluate resource allocation algorithms, which reveals whether each user is allocated as much as that of all other users having the same bottleneck. However, how fair an allocation algorithm is remains an urgent issue. We propose Dynamic Evaluation Framework for Fairness < Final Year Projects 2016 > DEFF, a framework to evaluate the fairness of an resource allocation algorithm. In our framework, two sub-models, Dynamic Demand Model (DDM) and Dynamic Node Model (DNM), are proposed to describe the dynamic characteristics of resource demand and the computing node number under cloud computing environment. Combining Fairness on Dominant Shares and the two sub-models above, we finally obtain DEFF. In our experiment, we adopt several typical resource allocation algorithms to prove the effectiveness on fairness evaluation by using the DEFF framework.
