Rapid increase and advancement in the use of computer and internet has increased the demand for resource sharing since it has increased the amount of load across internet to a vast level. In a distributed computing system made up of different types of processors, each processor in the system may have different performance and reliability characteristics. In order to take advantage of this diversity of processing power, a modular distributed program should have its modules assigned in such a way that the applicable system performance index, such as execution time or cost, is optimized. This situation can be handled either by increasing the size of servers or by effectively distributing the workload among multiple servers. The presented paper discusses various techniques of load balancing and proposes a new design and algorithm which uses a clustered and semi-distributed approach to perform dynamic load balancing.
