Optimal Traffic Load Balancing Algorithm for Aggregated Ethernet Links on Open vSwitch Platform

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Problem Description: Link Load balancing is major functionality to be performed by any switch. It is the process of making the decision of sending the packet to the link in such a way that the aggregated links carry fairly equal amount of traffic at all times. The 802.3 ad load balancing algorithm commonly used in today’s servers does not take into account the traffic flow through the interfaces. It does not have any intelligence to check the amount of traffic flowing through the interfaces. This project addresses this issue by adding intelligence to the switch to check the traffic flow and take necessary action when it reaches a fixed limit. *Publication date not found.
