This work concerns the study of load balancing in the openMosix distributed operating system. The openMosix kernel was augmented with the means to gather performance data related to the operation of its load balancing policies. A performance baseline was established via a number of tests. The load balancing information exchange algorithm was modified in various ways. This study focuses on attempting to determine the correct size for the load vector used to store and exchange load information… CONTINUE READING
