Chinese Abstract

過去的幾年由於影片串流的技術以及雲端系統的研發一直在進步當中,因此對於高品質影片的需求也不停的提升。許多雲端影片串流系統已被實現並且可提供影片串流功能,因此如何有效的提供管理資源來運用有限的資源變成一個重要的討論議題。此論文討論如何有效的用一個管理層來分配使用者需求在不同數目的雲端系統。 此論文也實現了一個有管理層的影片串流系統來使用OpenStack雲來管理所有的資源。在此系統裡有三樣不同自創的排程演算法會用來做效能以及反應速度上的比較,演算法有Round Robin,可靠雲端排程,以及基因演算法。此論文也提出一系列的雲端實驗來測試排程在不同種使用者輸入行為下的排程效能以及反應速度。每個排程演算法在不同行為下的效率最後會做一個比較及分析。

English Abstract

For the past few years with the advancing of video streaming and cloud system technologies, the need for high quality videos has increased more in the general public. Various cloud streaming systems have been implemented to offers video stream functions, therefore how to effectively provide and effectively manage the resources as well as how to use limited resources becomes an important topic of discussion. This study discusses how to effective distribute user requests using a management layer for different number of cloud clusters. This study implements a video streaming system with a management layer to manage all the resources in the system using OpenStack Infrastructure as a Service clouds. In this system, three different scheduling algorithms are tested for efficiency and response time. The algorithms tested are Round Robin, Reliable Cloud Scheduling Algorithm implemented within this research, and Genetic Algorithm. This study also proposes a series of cloud scheduling experiments to test the scheduling efficiency and the system responsiveness to different patterns of user requests. The effectiveness of each scheduling algorithms for all user request patterns will be compared and analyzed at the end of this research.
