%X Load balancing is the process of improving the
performance of a parallel and distributed system through a
redistribution of load among the processors [1] [5]. In this paper we
present the performance analysis of various load balancing
algorithms based on different parameters, considering two typical
load balancing approaches static and dynamic. The analysis indicates
that static and dynamic both types of algorithm can have
advancements as well as weaknesses over each other. Deciding type
of algorithm to be implemented will be based on type of parallel
applications to solve. The main purpose of this paper is to help in
design of new algorithms in future by studying the behavior of
various existing algorithms.
