In this paper, a new I/O-aware load-balancing scheme is presented to improve overall performance of a distributed system with a general and practical workload including I/O activities. The proposed scheme dynamically detects I/O load imbalance on nodes of a distributed system and determines whether to migrate the I/O requests of some jobs from overloaded nodes to other lessor under-loaded nodes, depending on data migration cost and remote I/O access overhead. Besides balancing I/O load, the… CONTINUE READING
