New applications emerge along with the rapid growth of the Internet. Many functionalities other than packet forwarding are being proposed to be added into routers for supporting those new applications. Those functionalities significantly improve the performances of the applications, but they incur overheads on routers at the same time. It is a thorny problem to reach a balance between the application performance and the functionality overhead. This paper studies that problem in the context of reliable multicast. It is termed Load-Balanced Agent Activation Problem (LBAAP). This paper regards the message implosion at multicast session source as the performance and the NAK message suppression agent at router as the functionality.
