A Hybrid Algorithm for Load Balancing

Load balancing aims to distribute the client requests over multiple web servers, thus preventing an overload to a single server. The increase in internet users leads to heavy traffic, so the load must be routed efficiently, for which the load balancing technique is used. Load balancing techniques routes and distributes the heavy traffic evenly across the multiple web servers so that a single server is not overloaded. This paper focuses on two commonly used load balancing techniques i.e., Round-Robin (RR) algorithm (static load balancing) and least load algorithm (dynamic load balancing).
