One of the major design goals in distributed systems is to minimize the mean job response time, an important measurement of system performance. This paper presents a central scheduler load balancing mechanism (CSLB). A threshold policy (with two variable threshold values) is used to reduce network traffic overhead. A simple timer is implemented to allow both periodic and instantaneous load balancings. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated by simulations for various parameters. The comparison between the proposed algorithm and a previous work is given
