Currently, the number of devices and services contained in the user’s home has considerably grown. Sometimes these devices are provided and managed remotely by service providers by facilitating installation or uninstallation of services. In a typical situation service providers install their services in the user’s home gateway from their remote repositories, regardless of the rest of the software installed on it. However, when various service providers work on a given gateway, the number of services and components installed on it increases. Therefore it is possible that this fact may lead to duplication or replacement of components necessary for other installed services, causing performance problems or service interruptions. This paper presents a system for analyzing and automatically optimizing the OSGi components deployed on a home gateway.
