Resource allocation for big data streams in cloud systems involves selecting the appropriate cloud resources. Big data has certain precise features such as size, speed, veracity, variety, and value. In this paper, a workload forecasting system for resource allocation in big data streams is developed. In this system, the data characteristics such as data type (variety), size (volume), and deviation in data flow rate (velocity) are extracted. Based on these data characteristics, the expected workload of the next time interval is predicted using support vector machine (SVM). Followed by this, the cloud resource manager dynamically allocates the available cloud resources depending on the predicted workload. The presentation outcomes have confirmed that the proposed system has less execution time and achieves better utilization of resources, when compared to the existing tools.
