Mobile application benchmarking based on the resource usage monitoring

Rawassizadeh, Reza (2009). Mobile application benchmarking based on the resource usage monitoring. International Journal of Mobile Computing and Multimedia Communications, 1(4) pp. 64–75.



There are many mobile applications currently available on the market, which have been developed specifically for smart phones. The operating systems of these smart phones are flexible in order to facilitate the application development for programmers regardless of the lower layers of the operating system. Mobile phones like other pervasive devices suffer from resource shortages. These resources vary from the power (battery) consumption to the network bandwidth consumption. In this research we identify and classify mobile resources and propose a monitoring approach to measure resource utilisation. We provide a monitoring tool, which generates traces about the resource usage. Then we propose a benchmarking model which studies traces and enables users to extract qualitative information about the application from quantitative resource usage traces. Results of the study could assist quality operators to compare similar applications from their resource usage point of view, or profile a single application resource consumption.
