Game-Theoretic Approach for Load Balancing in Computational Grids
Source: University of Sydney
Load balancing is a very important and complex problem in computational grids. A computational grid differs from traditional high-performance computing systems in the heterogeneity of the computing nodes, as well as the communication links that connect the different nodes together. There is a need to develop algorithms that can capture this complexity yet can be easily implemented and used to solve a wide range of load-balancing scenarios. In this paper, the authors propose a game-theoretic solution to the grid load-balancing problem.
