Pub/Sub on stream: A multi-core based message broker with QoS support

View publication

Abstract

Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) is becoming an increasingly popular message delivery technique in the Internet of Things (IoT) era. However, classical Publish/Subscribe is not suitable for some emerging IoT applications such as smart grid, transportation and sensor/actuator applications due to its lack of QoS capability. To meet the requirements for QoS in IoT message delivery, in this paper we propose the first Publish/Subscribe message broker with the ability to actively schedule computation resources to guarantee QoS requirements. We abstract the message matching algorithm into a task graph to express the data flow, forming a task-based stream matching framework. Based on the framework, we explore a message dispatching algorithm called Smart Dispatch and a task scheduling algorithm called DFGS to guarantee different QoS requirements. Experiments show that, the QoS-aware system can support more than 10x throughput than QoS-ignorant systems in representative Smart Grid cases. Also, our system shows near-linear scalability on a commodity multi-core machine. Copyright © 2012 ACM.
