Dynamic Load Sharing Policy in Distributed VoD using agents


H S Guruprasad, H D Maheshappa


Vol. 8  No. 10  pp. 270-275


This paper proposes a load sharing algorithm with a VoD architecture using agent technology. A mobile agent periodically updates the popularity of the videos which is used for efficiently allocating the channels. The proposed approach reduces the load on the central multimedia server, reduces storage redundancy among the proxy servers and maximizes the channel utilization between the neighboring proxy servers and the central multimedia server. The simulation results prove the load sharing among the neighboring proxy servers and hence reducing the load on central multimedia server, 100% channel utilization and more channel allocation for popular videos.
