C-Meter: A Framework for Performance Analysis of Computing Clouds
—Cloud computing has emerged as a new technology that provides large amount of computing and data storage capacity to its users with a promise of increased scalability, high availability, and reduced administration and maintenance costs. As the use of cloud computing environments increases, it becomes crucial to understand the performance of these environments. So, it is of great importance to assess the performance of computing clouds in terms of various metrics, such as the overhead of acquiring and releasing the virtual computing resources, and other virtualization and network communications overheads. To address these issues, we have designed and implemented C-Meter, which is a portable, extensible, and easy-to-use framework for generating and submitting test workloads to computing clouds. In this paper, first we state the requirements for frameworks to assess the performance of computing clouds. Then, we present the architecture of the C-Meter framework and discuss several reso...
