A Mobile Application Offloading Algorithm for Mobile Cloud Computing


In mobile cloud computing, offloading mobile applications to close remote servers appears as a straightforward solution to overcome mobile terminals processor and battery limitations. Remote execution leverages the high computation capacity of the server to enrich user experience and extend battery autonomy through energy savings. However, application offloading is energy efficient only under various conditions. For that purpose, we propose an original algorithm called MAO (Mobile Application's Offloading) triggered by two conditions : the current CPU load and State of Charge (SoC) of the battery. On the basis of various traffic scenarios mixing interactive and delay tolerant mobile applications, we study through numerical simulations the efficiency of the MAO algorithm and assess its performance in terms of rejected jobs and the amount of energy savings achieved. Rejected jobs are those unable to meet user quality of experience (QoE) and/or energy efficiency requirements. Evaluations on simulated workloads show that both traffic loads and user's radio mobile environment have a direct impact on the efficiency of the MAO algorithm.
