3 Background Sensornet ♦ A distributed sensing network comprised of a large number of small sensing devices equipped with processor memory radio ♦ Great volume of data Data Dissemination Algorithm ♦ Scalable ♦ Self-organizing ♦ Energy efficient
4 Observations/Events/Queries Observation ♦ Low-level output from sensors ♦ E.g. detailed temperature and pressure readings Event ♦ Constellations of low-level observations ♦ E.g. elephant-sighting, fire, intruder Query ♦ Used to elicit the event information from sensornets ♦ E.g. locations of fires in the network Images of intruders detected
9 Data-Centric Storage (DCS) Events are named with keys DCS provides (key, value) pair DCS supports two operations: ♦ Put (k, v) stores v ( the observed data ) according to the key k, the name of the data ♦ Get (k) retrieves whatever value is stored associated with key k Hash function ♦ Hash a key k into geographic coordinates ♦ Put() and Get() operations on the same key k hash k to the same location
10 DCS – Example (11, 28) Put(“elephant”, data) (11,28)=Hash(“elephant”)
11 DCS – Example (11, 28) (11,28)=Hash(“elephant”) Get(“elephant”)
13 Comparison Study Metrics ♦ Total Messages total packets sent in the sensor network ♦ Hotspot Messages maximal number of packets sent by any particular node
14 Comparison Study - contd.. Assume ♦ n is the number of nodes ♦ Asymptotic costs of O(n) for floods O(n 1/2 ) for point-to-point routing O(n 1/2 )0 Cost for Storage O(n 1/2 ) 0Cost for Response O(n 1/2 )O(n)0Cost for Query DSLSES
15 Comparison Study -contd.. D total, the total number of events detected Q, the number of event types queries for D q, the number of detected events of event types No more than one query for each event type, so there are Q queries in total. Assume hotspot occurs on packets sending to the access point.
16 Comparison Study – contd.. Hotspot Total DCSLSES DCS is preferable if Sensor network is large D total >> max[D q, Q]
17 Geographic Hash Table (GHT) Builds on ♦ Peer-to-peer Lookup Systems ♦ Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing GHT GPSR Peer-to-peer lookup system
GHT Home node to be the node geographically nearest the destination coordinates of the packet Home perimeter the entire perimeter that encloses the destionation.
20 Problems Not robust enough ♦ Nodes could move (new home node?) ♦ Home nodes could fail Not scalable ♦ Home nodes could become communication bottleneck ♦ Storage capacity of home nodes
21 Solutions Perimeter Refresh Protocol ♦ Extension for robustness ♦ Handles nodes failure and topology change Structured Replication ♦ Extension for scalability ♦ Load balance
22 Perimeter Refresh Protocol PRP stores a copy of a key-value pair at each node on the home perimeter. PRP generates refresh packets periodically.
23 Structured Replication Use a hierarchical decomposition of the key space. For a given root r and a given hierarchy depth d, one can compute 4 d -1 mirror images of r
Simulation Success rate the mean over all queries of the fraction of events returned in each response, divided by the total number of events known to have been stored in the network for that key. f the fraction of nodes that remain up for the entire simulation.
27 Simulation System parameters: N, the number of nodes in the system T, the number of event types, T = 100 Q, the number of event types queried for D i, the number of detected events of event type i. D i = 100
28 Simulation Three version of DCS Normal DCS (N-DCS): a query returns a separate message for each detected event Summarized DCS (S-DCS): A query returns a single message regardless of the number of detected events Structured Replication DCS (SR-DCS)
33 Conclusion Advantages: In DCS, relevant data are stored by name at nodes within the sensornets. To ensure robustness and scalability, DCS uses Perimeter Refresh Protocol (PRP) and Structured Replication (SR). Compared with ES and LS, DCS is preferable in large sensornet.
34 Conclusion Disadvantages: GHT requires approximate knowledge of a sensornet's boundaries Only supports binary events, not range queries.
