Abstract : The growing autonomy of servers may significantly deteriorate the performance of traditional load-balancing strategies. Indeed, the authoritative decision belongs to the load-balancer, but the autonomous servers may reject the requests on their own convenience. We propose in this paper an original load-balancing strategy for transferring this authority from the load-balancer to the autonomous servers. We describe the underlying architecture and evaluate our solution based on a first set of experimentations.
