Introducing browser-based high-frequency cloud monitoring system using WebSocket proxy

Abstract: Currently, monitoring cloud resources is becoming a priority. However, one of the key challenges for cloud monitoring is that B/S monitoring systems lack the support of the high-frequency monitoring. To address this limitation, this paper aims to provide a high-frequency monitoring approach to integrate with clouds. We introduce a browser-based high-frequency cloud monitoring system (BHCMS) to enable a new monitoring of dynamic and responsive applications. The experimental results show that the average latency time of our WebSocket monitoring system is generally lower than polling, FlashSocket and Socket solutions. Finally, the paper concludes with a brief discussion of possible future activities, which might be pursued to enable similar monitoring systems to benefit from this technology.
