Hybrid Architecture for Autonomous Load Balancing in Distributed Systems based on Smooth Fuzzy Function


Due to the rapid advancements and developments in wide area networks and powerful computational resources, the load balancing mechanisms in distributed systems have gained pervasive applications covering wired as well as mobile distributed systems. In large-scale distributed systems, sharing of distributed resources is required for enhancing overall resource utilization. This paper presents a comprehensive study and detailed comparative analysis of different load balancing algorithms employing fuzzy logic and mobile agents. We have proposed a hybrid architecture for integrated load balancing and monitoring in distributed computing systems employing fuzzy logic and autonomous mobile agents. Furthermore, we have proposed a smooth and composite fuzzy membership function in order to model fine grained load information in a system. The simulation study and a detailed qualitative, as well as quantitative analysis of algorithmic performances, are presented. Lastly, a deployment environment is described.
