Web Service Response Time Prediction Using HMM and Bayesian Network

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 308)


Selection of suitable and efficient services by service consumers turns out to be a herculean task with the availability of abundant functionally similar services over the Web. In this scenario, quality of services being offered plays a crucial role in service selection by consumers. Response time has been a key factor influencing a consumer for selection of a Web service. Predicting it has been a major challenge for researchers. In this paper, we propose an approach for prediction of response time of Web services using hidden Markov model (HMM) and Bayesian networks.
