An Analytical Review : Static Load Balancing Algorithms

Authors(1) :-Navjot Jyoti

Load balancing is the process of improving the performance of a parallel and distributed system by distributing load among different available processors. In literature we have multiple load balancing algorithms divided into two broad categories i.e. Static Load Balancing and Dynamic Load Balancing. This paper presents analytical review of three static load balancing algorithms and present the performance analysis of three static load balancing algorithms using execution time and waiting time as a benchmarks. Performance statistics of this behaviour evaluated by designing the simulator program in C++. On this simulator we have smaller number of jobs and larger number of job for different number of heterogeneous processors to get the execution time and waiting time.
