Abstract

A Context-aware Prediction Framework (CAPF) can be provided through a Self-adaptive System (SAS) resource manager to support the autoscaling decision in Edge Computing (EC) environments. However, EC dynamicity and workload fluctuation represent the main challenges to design a robust prediction framework. Machine Learning (ML) algorithms show a promising accuracy in workload forecasting problems which may vary according to the workload pattern. Therefore, the accuracy of such algorithms needs to be evaluated and compared in order to select the most suitable algorithm for EC workload prediction. In this paper, a thorough comparison is conducted focusing on the most popular ML algorithms which are Linear Regression (LR), Support Vector Regression (SVR), and Neural Networks (NN) using real EC dataset. The experimental results show that a robust prediction framework can be supported by more than one algorithm considering the EC contextual behavior. The results also reveal that the NN outperforms LR and SVR in most cases.
