Load Balancers (LBs) play a critical role in managing the performance and resource utilization of distributed systems. However, developing efficient LBs for large, distributed clusters is challenging for several reasons: (i) large clusters require numerous scheduling decisions per second, (ii) such clusters typically consist of heterogeneous servers that widely differ in their computing power, and (iii) such clusters often experience significant changes in load. In this paper we propose HALO, a… CONTINUE READING
