Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors propose an architecture for load balancing, which contains an adaptive packet scheduler with a bursty traffic splitting algorithm. The scheduler has one classifier which classifies the flows into aggressive and normal flow. Aggressive flows are treated as high priority flows. Based on the buffer occupancy threshold, a trigger handler checks for load unbalance of the network and automatically triggers the load adapter. The load adapter reroutes the high-priority aggressive flows into the least loaded best path, using the bursty traffic splitter algorithm. The bursty traffic splitting algorithm splits the aggressive flows over multiple parallel paths, based on a split vector.
