In Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET), congestion is one of the most important limitations that affect the performance of the whole network. Multi-path routing protocol can balance and share the load better than the single path routing protocol in ad hoc networks, thereby reducing the congestion possibility by dividing the traffic in alternative paths. The performance of the network can be improved by using a burden harmonizing mechanism. Such a mechanism transfers load from overloaded nodes to under loaded nodes.
