Multi-resource collaborative optimization for adaptive virtual machine placement
The unbalanced resource utilization of physical machines (PMs) in cloud data centers could cause resource wasting, workload imbalance and even negatively impact quality of service (QoS). To address this problem, this paper proposes a multi-resource collaborative optimization control (MCOC) mechanism for virtual machine (VM) migration. It uses Gaussian model to adaptively estimate the probability that the running PMs are in the multi-resource utilization balance status. Given the estimated probability of the multi-resource utilization balance state, we propose effective selection algorithms for live VM migration between the source hosts and destination hosts, including adaptive Gaussian model-based VMs placement (AGM-VMP) algorithm and VMs consolidation (AGM-VMC) method. Experimental results show that the AGM-VMC method can effectively achieve load balance and significantly improve resource utilization, reduce data center energy consumption while guaranteeing QoS.
