Wide-area network traffic engineering enables network operators to reduce congestion and improve utilization by balancing load across multiple paths. Current approaches to traffic engineering can be modeled in terms of a routing component that computes forwarding paths, and a load balancing component that maps incoming flows onto those paths dynamically,… (More)
OBJECTIVES Statins are a well-known primary and secondary prevention drug for cardiovascular disease and NICE guidelines have been issued to identify key indicators for their use. An audit looking into statin prescribing for medical inpatients was carried out in two geographically distinct London hospitals. DESIGN A prospective inpatient audit of medical… (More)
In this paper, we will be discussing some faults with existing load balancing algorithms and architectures. We will propose a new load balancing algorithm and a new grid architecture that will utilize the new load balancing algorithm. The performance of the new load balancing algorithm will be compared with an existing load balancing algorithm.
