Efficient Channel Allocation Based on the Weights of Videos Using Agents
This paper proposes a load sharing algorithm with higher priority given to the videos with higher weights using agent technology. A mobile agent periodically updates the popularity and the weight of the videos which is used for efficiently allocating the channels. The proposed approach reduces the load on the central multimedia server, allocates more channels for higher weight videos and maximizes the channel utilization between the neighboring proxy servers and the central multimedia server. The simulation results prove the load sharing among the neighboring proxy servers and hence reducing the load on central multimedia server, maximum channel utilization and more channel allocation for weight videos.
