The Internet of things has become an interesting area of research in the last few years due to its ability to make human life simple and easier. Quality of Services (QoS) has gained a lot of importance due to the increasing popularity of the technology. QoS metrics help the IoT users to understand and express their requirements for the selection of services provided by IoT. Researchers in this field have come up with different types of architectures to provide a better view and define all the functions of the technology. In this paper, we have defined a few of the architectures and QoS metrics related to these architectures.
