ABSTRACT
Grid computing comprises of distributed computer systems which are geographically dispersed to share the combination of resources in a heterogeneous environment. The ever varying and increasing demands of the computational resources have generated the need for solutions that are more flexible. With the use of a high tech computer that has more and faster processors and auxiliary storage space or more RAM (random access memory), it is not well enough for a solution as the system usage patterns differ. A grid based distributed system can solve this problem by allowing multiple independent jobs to run over a network with heterogeneous computing nodes. A network-aware load balancing algorithms that are dynamic as well as quick are the requirement of a network of computers to keep the workload balanced, represented by these jobs. The purpose of this paper is to review various different load balancing algorithms for the grid based distributed network, identify several comparison metrics for the load balancing algorithms and to carry out the comparison based on these identified metrics between them.
