This paper presents a new load balancing algorithm called Periodic Symmetrically-Initiated (PSI). It is symmetrically initiated and uses periodic polling of a single random node to acquire information about the system state. Its performance on a distributed system is compared to the following algorithms: Random, Sender, Receiver, and Symetric. These algorithms have been evaluated in [15] where the terms Sender and Receiver are referred to as Forward and Reverse respectively. The algorithms… CONTINUE READING
