Volume 8 No.3 Special Issue:June 2019 pp 105-108
Distribution of workload in a balanced manner is a main challenge in cloud computing system. It distributes workload among multiple nodes, hence resources are properly utilized. This is an optimization problem and a good load balancer should be involved for this strategy to the types of tasks and dynamic environment. To overcome load balancing problem here a Novel Load balancing Algorithm is develop i.e. Dragonfly Algorithm is design and developed, to execute the entire task with shortest completion time and load balanced. Our algorithm will be presented with efficient solution representation, derivation of efficient fitness function (or multi-objective function) along with the usual Dragonfly operators. The performance of the algorithm will be analyzed based on the different evaluation measures. The algorithms like particle swarm optimization (PSO) and Genetic algorithm (GA) will be taken for the comparative analysis.
