Abstract

Fog computing is an extension of cloud that brings the cloud closer to where data is created and acted upon. Fog computing is introduced so as to reduce the disadvantages arising from cloud computing. The key aim of Fog computing is to provide the devices with an optimum service level which is fast and effective. However, Fog is a new emerging computing paradigm which still needs standardization, particularly in the aspect energy optimization problems. To study the problem of energy consumption in fog computing, we propose the use of an energy aware load balancing algorithm. An energy aware load balancing algorithm is developed in this paper in order to allocate tasks to fog devices in an energy aware manner. Each allocation considers the energy capacity of the fog devices. This research work is successful in that it is able to reduce the energy that is consumed in a fog device. Introducing the use of renewable source of energy, the power consumption in fog/IoT environment is also reduced. Finally, based on simulations and numerical results, we showed the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm and its performance over default algorithm in the simulator.
