This paper presents a load balancing algorithm for a parallel implementation of an evolutionary strategy on heterogeneous clusters. Evolutionary strategies can efficiently solve a diverse set of optimization problems. Due to cluster heterogeneity and in order to improve the speedup of the parallel implementation a load balancing algorithm has been implemented. This load balancing algorithm takes into account cluster heterogeneity and it is based on an optimal initial distribution. This initial… CONTINUE READING
