Analysis of cores affinity within the containerized environment based on selected IOT middleware - observations and recommendations


The Internet of Things gets bigger and bigger audiences. This topic is really popular in science and also in industry. There are many fields for research. One of them is efficient deployment against resource utilization. Another one is containerization within IoT platforms. One of the commonalities of these two topics is different CPU affinity against containerized platforms to get the best performance. There were plenty of papers dedicated to containerization even in IoT but none of these focused on core affinity. As this survey analyzes the scalability and stability of the platform in different core-container configurations based on the IoT platform - DeviceHive, it brings a novelty to this area. Most interesting observations were made in the field of the same configurations in terms of the number of nodes but varying with core affinity. Analyzed observations may be useful during the architecture planning phase for containerized IoT platforms.
