The lightness of distributed application processing platform becomes more imperative with rapid proliferation of SMDs and ever increasing demand to utilize SMDs for intensive applications. Lightweight framework aspires for minimum possible overhead and optimal possible resources utilization on SMDs. Traditionally the distributed platform is established at runtime by outsourcing intensive applications partially or entirely to cloud datacenters. Such approaches implant intensive responsibilities of distributed platform establishment and management on SMDs for the entire duration of remote application processing. For that reason computing resources of SMDs are exploited copiously. In this paper we investigate the heavyweight aspects of current offloading algorithms in two different scenarios. First, we analyze the impact of VM deployment for application offloading in simulation environment using CloudSim. Second, we investigate the heavyweight aspects of current offloading algorithms by qualitative analysis. Finally, we propose a novel model for lightweight distributed application deployment in mobile cloud computing.
