Input queued switching architectures have become predominant in high speed switches and routers. In this paper, we change the point of view from weight-based matching to weight-based service, and propose a distributed load adaptive scheduling (DLAS) algorithm. In DLAS, the round robin arbiters are used to find a matching between the input ports and output ports. Once the matching between an input-output pair is established, the scheduler will keep it for a certain period, which is a function of the number of cells queued in the corresponding VOQ. Simulation results show that our scheme achieves high throughput and low delay under admissible traffic. For uniform Bernoulli i.i.d. traffic, it achieves 100% throughput, and for nonuniform traffic, its throughput is almost 100%.
