Cloud service providers are provisioning resources including a variety of virtual machine instances to support customers that migrate their services to the cloud. From the customers’ perspective, selecting the appropriate amount of resources is tightly coupled with performance and cost. By identifying the potential resource bottlenecks in the early stage of the service deployment process, resource planning can be significantly optimized. However, due to the unpredictable workloads and heterogeneous resources, it is difficult to identify resource bottlenecks that can degrade system performance. To support system non-functional requirements (NFR) in a better manner, we propose a reinforcement ..
