Heterogeneous machines can be significantly better than homogeneous machines but for that an effective workload distribution policy is required. Maximum realization of the performance can be achieved when system designer will overcome load imbalance condition within the system. Load distribution and load balancing policy together can reduce total execution time and increase system throughput. In this paper; the authors provide algorithm analysis of a threshold based job allocation and load balancing policy for heterogeneous system where all incoming jobs are judiciously and transparently distributed among sharing nodes on the basis of jobs' requirement and processor capability for the maximization of performance and decline in execution time.
