Mechanism for Implementation of Load Balancing Using Process Migration

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The feature of load sharing or load balancing involves migration of running processes from highly loaded workstations of a network to the lightly-loaded or idle workstations of the network. This paper describes load balancing techniques to share the workload of the workstations belonging to a particular network to gain better performance from the overall network. The mechanisms of load information collection, determining the idle workstations as well as highly-loaded workstations, and transferring the load from one workstation to another workstation are represented in this paper. The paper describes a dynamic load balancing algorithm to achieve runtime performance gained by managing the jobs as they arrive.
