Service selection has been widely investigated as an effective adaptation mechanism that allows a service broker, offering a composite service, to bind each task of the abstract composition to a corresponding implementation, selecting it from a set of candidates. The selection aims typically to fulfill the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of the composite service, considering several QoS parameters in the decision. We compare the performance of two representative examples of the per-request and per-flow approaches that address the service selection issue at a different granularity level. We present experimental results obtained with a prototype implementation of a service broker. Our results show the ability of the per-flow approach in sustaining an increasing traffic of requests, while the per-request approach appears more suitable to offer a finer customizable service selection in a lightly loaded system. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.

Abstract

Service selection has been widely investigated as an effective adaptation mechanism that allows a service broker, offering a composite service, to bind each task of the abstract composition to a corresponding implementation, selecting it from a set of candidates. The selection aims typically to fulfill the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of the composite service, considering several QoS parameters in the decision. We compare the performance of two representative examples of the per-request and per-flow approaches that address the service selection issue at a different granularity level. We present experimental results obtained with a prototype implementation of a service broker. Our results show the ability of the per-flow approach in sustaining an increasing traffic of requests, while the per-request approach appears more suitable to offer a finer customizable service selection in a lightly loaded system. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
