Evaluating the Performance of Middleware Load Balancing Strategies
This paper presents three contributions to research on middleware load balancing. First, it describes the design of Cygnus, which is an extensible open-source middleware framework developed to support adaptive and nonadaptive load balancing strategies. Key features of Cygnus are its ability to make load balancing decisions based on application-definedload metrics, dynamically (re)configure load balancing strategies at run-time, and transparently add load balancing support to client and server applications. Second, it describes the design of LBPerf, an opensource middleware load balancing benchmarking toolkit developed to evaluate load balancing strategies at the middleware level. Third, it presents the results of experiments that systematically evaluate the performance of adaptive load balancing strategies implemented using the Cygnus middleware framework using workloads generated by LBPerf. The workloads used in our experiments are based on models of CPU-bound requests that are repre...
