Abstract: This paper presents a dynamic monitoring and analysis architecture for Cloud computing environments. It collects and analyses Cloud parameters to detect performance degradations. The proposed dynamic architecture, called D-CEP4CMA, is based on the methodology of complex event processing (CEP). It is designed to dynamically switch between different centralised and distributed CEP architectures depending on the load/memory of the CEP machine and network traffic conditions in the observed cloud environment. Experimental results demonstrate the efficiency of D-CEP4CMA and its performance in terms of precision and recall in comparison to centralised and distributed CEP architectures.

Keywords: cloud computing; complex event processing; CEP; performance analysis; dynamic architecture; big data intelligence; cloud performance; performance monitoring.
