A Receiver-Initiated Approach with Fuzzy Logic Control in Load Balancing

Author: Mingchang Huang

This paper proposes a new approach for load balancing by using receiver-initiated load transfer method. Usually data transfer for load balancing starts from a sender node. This is what called a sender-initiated method. In this paper, instead, a load balancing action starts from a receiver node; the receiver node initiates load balancing for asking a sender node for load transfer. Fuzzy logic control is applied in this approach to avoid using a fixed threshold value in load balancing in ad-hoc networks. Performance for the receiver-initiated approach is evaluated and compared with other load balancing approaches—BID protocol, fuzzy logic sender-initiated algorithm and non-fuzzy (threshold based) receiver-initiated algorithm. The results show that the receiver-initiated approach improves network performance by comparing with the other three.
