Supplementing the theoretical analysis, we study the efficiency of our methods and the feasibility of the OTF market under realistic scenarios.
On the one hand, the <Link>OTF Market Demonstrator<Link> was developed, which demonstrates the practical feasibility of the OTF market in a real distributed system. While our former focus was on feasibility, in the current phase we will implement our own newly developed methods and compare them with the existing standard methods that are currently used. Here, a special attention is given to self-organizing methods for the search for services and publish-subscribe systems.
On the other hand, the efficiency of our methods is benchmarked by using a simulator, which can simulate large markets of more than 10,000 participants and therefore allows testing a significantly higher scalability than the demonstrator. Our goal is to draw conclusions from the behavior of our methods in the experimental evaluations and, if necessary, adapt them to the characteristics of the market. Important goals are to ensure the scalability, adaptivity nd arobustness of our methods.
