Load balancing among application layer Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks is critical for its effectiveness but, is considered to be the most important development for next-generation internet infrastructure. Most structured P2P systems rely on ID-space partitioning schemes to solve the load imbalance problem and have been known to result in an imbalance factor of ? (log N) in the zone sizes. Two important contributions to minimize the same are proposed in. The virtual-server-based load balancing problem using an optimization-based approach and deriving proposal in general and its advantages over previous strategies.
