Load balancing techniques play a critically important role in developing high-performance cluster computing platforms. Existing load balancing approaches are concerned with the effective usage of CPU and memory resources. Due to imbalance in disk I/O resources under I/O-intensive workloads, the previous CPUor memory-aware load balancing schemes suffer significant performance drop. To remedy this deficiency, in this paper we propose a novel loadbalancing algorithm (hereinafter referred to as… CONTINUE READING
