Dynamic Resource Allocation and Computation Offloading for Edge Computing System

Zheng Chang, liqing Liu, Xijuan Guo, Tao Chen, Tapani Ristaniemi


  In this work, we propose a dynamic optimization scheme for an edge computing system with multiple users, where the radio and computational resources, and offloading decisions, can be dynamically allocated with the variation of computation demands, radio channels and the computation resources. Specifically, with the objective to minimize the energy consumption of the considered system, we propose a joint computation offloading, radio and computational resource allocation algorithm based on Lyapunov optimization. Through minimizing the derived upper bound of the Lyapunov drift-plus-penalty function, the main problem is divided into several sub-problems at each time slot and are addressed separately. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
