On the Characterization of Distributed Virtual Environment Systems
Abstract. Distributed Virtual Environment systems have experienced a spectacular growth last years. One of the key issues in the design of scalable and costeffective DVE systems is the partitioning problem. This problem consists of efficiently assigning clients (3-D avatars) to the servers in the system, and some techniques have been already proposed for solving it. In this paper, we propose the experimental characterization of DVE systems. The evaluation results show that there exists an absence of correlation between the quality function proposed in the literature for solving the partitioning problem and the performance of DVE systems. The reason for that absence of correlation is the non-linear behavior of DVE systems with the number of avatars in the system. Also, we have studied the effects of the two terms of the quality function proposed in the literature on the performance of DVE systems. The results show that workload balancing mainly has an effect on system throughput, while...
