Application and modeling of resource service trust-QoS evaluation in manufacturing grid system
Abstract:Resource scheduling is the bottleneck in MGrid; the current research on resource scheduling strategy is mainly based on resource performance-QoS (quality of service), but the factor of trust-QoS is ignored, which will result in unreasonable and unpractical scheduling results. In order to enhance the validity and success rate of resource scheduling in a manufacturing grid (MGrid) system, provide high credible resource service abilities and results to the user, the concept of resource service trust-QoS is presented; trust-QoS was introduced into MGrid resource service scheduling and the important roles it plays emphasized. The trust problems existing in the resource service transaction between resource service demanders (RSD) and resource service providers (RSP) are put forward. The trust-QoS relationship model which is capable of capturing a comprehensive range of trust relationships which exist in the MGrid system is put forward. Then a two-layer resource service trust-QoS evaluation model is put forward, including an intra-domain trust-QoS evaluation model and an inter-domain trust-QoS evaluation model. The quantitative evaluating algorithms of trust-QoS degree value are proposed and described in detail, as well as the value of real-time and dynamic updating algorithms of trust-QoS degree. Finally, an application prototype, namely MBRSPP-MGrid, is developed. The experimental results of the case study show that the proposed models and algorithms are effective and useful.
