A service size of the IoT environment is determined by the number of sensors. The number of sensors increase means increases the amount of data generated by the IoT environment. There are studies to reliably operate a network for research and operational dynamic buffer for data when network congestion control congestion in the network environment. There are also studies of the stream data that has been processed in the connectionless network environment. In this study, we propose a sensor gateway for processing big data of the IoT environment. For this, review the RESTful for designing a sensor middleware, and apply the double-buffer algorithm to process the stream data efficiently. Finally, it generates a big data traffic using the MJpeg stream that is based on the HTTP protocol over TCP to evaluate the proposed system, with open source media player VLC using the image received and compare the throughput performance.
