Performance Analysis of Web Applications Working on Cloud Environment Using Workload Prediction Model Based on ANN

Supreet Kaur Sahi, V. S. Dhaka


Cloud computing is good fit for deployment of different applications but workload and instances requirement will vary depending upon type of applications. Workload estimation of cloud computing is tedious task.  In cloud computing number of instances of cloud need to be reserved based on certain parameters. If these instance are under estimated then performance of system will reduce and if over estimated then cost will increase. In order to optimize this cost there must be some algorithm working that can help in reserving number of instances based on certain parameters. Web applications have unpredictable workload. Certain steps of capacity planning need to follow for predicting workload of web applications. This paper analysis performance of ANN based workload estimation model for web applications on cloud environment. A brief survey of literature is also presented to find out different parameters necessary for capacity planning of website.
