Dynamic Load Balancing Architecture for Distributed VoD Using Agent Technology
Source: Dr.M.G.R University
This paper proposes a load balancing algorithm for a distributed VoD architecture using agents. A mobile agent is used to frequently update the popularity of the videos based on which channel allocation is done effectively. The proposed approach groups a set of local proxy servers into a Local Proxy Server Group [LPG] for load balancing among the proxy servers, to reduce the load on the central multimedia server, to reduce storage redundancy among the proxy servers and to maximize the channel utilization.
