A Simple Approximate Analysis of Floating Content for Context-Aware Applications

446 views

Published on

In this work, we present a simple (in that it uses few primitive system parameters), approximate analytical model for the performance analysis of context-aware applications that use floating content. From a system design perspective, our analysis can be used to tune key system parameters so as to achieve the desired application performance. In particular, we apply our analysis to estimate the "success probability" for two representative categories of context-aware applications, and show how the system can be configured to achieve the application’s target. In order to complement our analytical study, we validate our model using extensive simulations under different settings and mobility patterns. Our simulation results show that our model-based predictions are indeed highly accurate under a wide range of conditions.

A Simple Approximate Analysis of Floating Content for Context-Aware Applications

  1. 1. A Simple Approximate Analysis of Floating Content for Context-Aware Applications Shahzad Ali, Gianluca Rizzo, Marco Ajmone Marsan, Balaji Rengarajan Institute Imdea Networks, Madrid, Spain HES–SO Valais, Sierre, Switzerland
  2. 2. The Floating Content service Objective: ensuring the availability of some data to mobile users – within a certain geographic area – for a given duration in time – without infrastructure support Applications: Emergency services, road traffic information, social networks…
  3. 3. I - A node generates content The basic FC mechanism
  4. 4. II - Content is replicated opportunistically The basic FC mechanism
  5. 5. III: Content starts to float The basic FC mechanism III - Content “floats” within the Anchor Zone
  6. 6. We considered the performance of FC from an application perspective What is the performance of applications using FC? • What applications can be supported with acceptable performance? • How to engineer the application to achieve a given QoS? State of the art: • Analysis: sufficient conditions for the content to float
  7. 7. Our results • We developed an simple analytical model for performance analysis of applications relying on FC – Our model is accurate on a variety of configurations – Simulations: our result are accurate even outside of the model • FC is a viable communication service for a large class of context aware applications
  8. 8. We built a simple model for application performance • Random direction mobility model • Users distributed according to a Poisson PP P(s)=P(a user gets the content before leaving the AZ) P(at least 1 successful contact over K)P( having K contacts)
  9. 9. The formula is accurate, even outside the model
  10. 10. Future work –Extension to more realistic mobility models –Evaluation on real mobility traces
