An Intelligent New Dynamic Load Redistribution Mechanism in Distributed Environments Lee, Seong-Hoon;
Load redistribution is a critical resource in computer system. In sender-initiated load redistribution algorithms, the sender continues to send unnecessary request messages for load transfer until a receiver is found while the system load is heavy. These unnecessary request messages result in inefficient communications, low CPU utilization, and low system throughput in distributed systems. To solve these problems, we propose a genetic algorithm based approach for improved sender-initiated load redistribution in distributed systems. Compared with the conventional sender-initiated algorithms, the proposed algorithm decreases the response time and task processing time.
