Voilà: Tail-Latency-Aware Fog Application Replicas Autoscaler


Latency-sensitive fog computing applications may use replication both to scale their capacity and to place application instances as close as possible to their end users. In such geo-distributed environments, a good replica placement should maintain the tail network latency between end-user devices and their closest replica within acceptable bounds while avoiding overloaded replicas. When facing non-stationary workloads it is essential to dynamically adjust the number and locations of a fog application's replicas. We propose Voilà, a tail-latency-aware auto-scaler integrated in the Kubernetes orchestration system. Voilà maintains a fine-grained view of the volumes of traffic generated from different user locations, and uses simple yet highly-effective procedures to maintain suitable application resources in terms of size and location.
