Multi-access edge computing (MEC) brings high-bandwidth and low-latency access to applications distributed at the edge of the network. Data transmission and exchange become faster, and the overhead of the task migration between mobile devices and edge cloud becomes smaller. In this paper, we adopt the fine-grained task migration model. At the same time, in order to further reduce the delay and energy consumption of task execution, the concept of the task cache is proposed, which involves caching the completed tasks and related data on the edge cloud. Then, we consider the limitations of the edge cloud cache capacity to study the task caching strategy and fine-grained task migration strategy on the edge cloud using the genetic algorithm (GA). Thus, we obtained the optimal mobile device task migration strategy, satisfying minimum energy consumption and the optimal cache on the edge cloud. The simulation results showed that the task caching strategy based on fine-grained migration can greatly reduce the energy consumption of mobile devices in the MEC environment. View Full-Text
