Finding the Efficiency of Query by Using Predictive Energy Saving Online Scheduling Algorithm

Authors(2) :-Chhinabala Vinod Kumar, P. Prasad Babu

Web search engines are composed by thousands of query processing nodes, i.e., servers dedicated to process user queries. Metamorphic testing may be a testing technique which will be used to verify the useful correctness of software system within the absence of an ideal oracle. This paper extends metamorphic testing into a user-oriented approach to software system verification, validation, and quality assessment, and conducts large scale empirical studies with four major net search engines: Google, Bing, Chinese Bing, and Baidu. These search engines are very tough to check and assess using conventional approaches owing to the lack of an objective and generally recognized oracle. The results are useful for each search engine developers and users, and demonstrate that our approach will effectively alleviate the oracle drawback and challenges close a lack of specifications when verifying, validating, and evaluating giant and complex software systems.
