Abstract

Container, such as Docker, is becoming more and more popular in recent years in cloud computing area. More and more people started using container as their choice to run services on the cloud. While containers are just like processes on the Linux, in fact, so it is quite difficult to do resource management like traditional virtual machine does. To meet different demands of cloud users in using cloud computing resources under the cloud computing environment, especially disk I/O resource, an effective disk I/O QoS (Quality of Service) for Docker or some other container-based cloud computing technique should be used. Thus, we designed dDiskQoS, a solution to do disk I/O QoS for container-based cloud computing technique, which can effectively manage and control disk I/O traffic. The key idea of dDiskQoS is to leverage the advantage of Linux cgroups technique and implement a multi-weighted algorithm to satisfy the disk I/O requirements from both time-sensitive containers and big data throughput containers. The evaluations show that the solution can meet the demands of different scenarios while accepting different parameters, to guarantee system efficiency. Additionally, there is very small overhead in loading our QoS solution. With dDiskQoS, operators can keep more containers running in one host, which will certainly save the cost and energy.
