An efficient algorithm for monitoring virtual machines in clouds

Sultan Alshamrani


Cloud computing systems consist of a pool of Virtual Machines (VMs), which are installed physically on the provider's set up. The main aim of the VMs is to offer the service to the end users. With the current increasing demand for the cloud VMs, there is always a huge requirement to secure the cloud systems. To keep these cloud systems secured, they need a continuous and a proper monitoring. For the purpose of monitoring, several algorithms are available with FVMs. FVM is a forensic virtual machine which monitors the threats among the VMs. Our formulated algorithm runs on FVM. In this paper, we formulate the Random-Start-Round-Robin algorithm for monitoring inside FVM.
