Load Balancing, Mobile Agent, Channel Allocation, Waiting Time, Popular Videos, Proxy Server
This paper proposes a load balancing algorithm for a distributed VoD architecture using agents. A mobile agent is used to frequently update the popularity of the videos based on which channel allocation is done effectively. The proposed approach groups a set of local proxy servers into a Local Proxy Server Group [LPG] for load balancing among the proxy servers, to reduce the load on the central multimedia server, to reduce storage redundancy among the proxy servers and to maximize the channel utilization. The simulation results prove the load balancing among the local proxy servers, reduction of load on central multimedia server, maximum channel utilization and more channel allocation for popular videos.
