In this paper, the authors propose a novel adaptive meta-heuristics based scheduling policies for provisioning the VCPU resources among competing VM service domains in a cloud. Such provisioning guarantees to service level agreement for each domain, with respect to the diverse workloads on-the-fly. The framework is built on CSIM models and tools, making it easy to understand and configure various virtualization setups. The paper demonstrates the usefulness of the framework by evaluating proactive, reactive and adaptive VCPU scheduling algorithms. The paper evaluates how periodic/aperiodic execution of control actions can affect policy performance and speed of convergence.
