Develop or Dissipate Fogs? Evaluating an IoT Application in Fog and Cloud Simulations

Abstract

The recent advances in Information and Communication Technology had a significant impact on distributed systems by giving birth to novel paradigms like Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and the Internet of Things (IoT). Clouds and fogs have promising properties to serve IoT needs, which require enormous data to be stored, processed and analysed generated by their sensors and devices. Since such IoT-Fog-Cloud systems can be very complex, it is inevitable to use simulators to investigate them. Cloud simulation is highly studied by now, and solutions offering fog modelling capabilities have also started to appear. In this paper we briefly compare fog modelling approaches of simulators, and present detailed evaluations in two of them to show the effects of utilizing fog resources over cloud ones to execute IoT applications. We also share our experiences in working with these simulators to help researchers and practitioners, who aim to perform future research in this field.
