An Energy-Efficient Process Replication by Differentiating Starting Time of Process Replicas in Virtual Machine Environments

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 346)

Abstract

Process replication approaches using a server cluster system are widely used to provide reliable and available distributed application services. However, a server cluster system consumes a large amount of electric energy compared with process non-replication approaches. In this paper, an RATB-DSTPR (Redundant Active Time-Based algorithm with Differentiating Starting Time of Process Replicas) algorithm is newly proposed to reduce the total electric energy consumption of a server cluster by differentiating starting time of process replicas. The evaluation results show the total electric energy consumption of a server cluster and the average response time of each process can be reduced in the RATB-DSTPR algorithm.
