Abstract

Hundreds and thousands of data packets are routed every second by computer networks which are complex systems. The data should be routed efficiently to handle large amounts of data in network. A core networking solution which is responsible for distribution of incoming traffic among servers hosting the same content is load balancing. For example, if there are ten servers within a network and two of them are doing 95% of the work, the network is not running very efficiently. If each server was handling about 10% of the traffic, the network would run much faster.Networks get more efficient with the help of Load balancing. The traffic is evenly distributed amongst the network making sure no single device is overwhelmed.When a request is balanced across multiple servers, it prevents any server from becoming a single point of failure. It improves overall availability and responsiveness. To evenly split the traffic load among several different servers web servers; often use load balancing.Load balancing requires hardware or software that divides incoming traffic amongst the available serverseither it is done on a local network or a large web server. High amount of traffic is received by a network that have one server dedicated to balance the load among other servers and devices in the network. This server is often known as load balancer. Load balancing is used by clusters or multiple computers that work together, to spread out processing jobs among the available systems.
