The development of modern technologies has greatly improved the capability of mobile devices. Along with this, mobile devices can provide their idle resources such as apps, sensors and network to others via service computing. However, mobile service hosts cannot satisfy excessive service requests due to relatively limited capabilities and resources. Therefore, how to select service requests and schedule them to an efficient utilization has become a critical problem. To deal with this problem, we propose a novel approach named RDSP4MH (revenue-drive service provision for mobile hosts) towards request selection, request scheduling and resource allocation for mobile service hosts. The experiments have demonstrated the high performance and efficiency of the algorithm.
