It is to select and configure the appropriate constituent components when designing an effective dynamic load balancing algorithm for distributed systems, since the performance of a dynamic load balancing algorithm heavily depends on these components. The main concern of this paper is to analyze and explore the various components for designing dynamic load balancing algorithms and to propose new information and location policies factoring in the limitations of the existing approaches. We also present a compartive analysis of existing information policies and location policies based on a set of defined parameters. This analysis is useful in identifying the lacunae in the current research in dynamic load balancing algorithms and justifies the need for a novel efficient dynamic load balancing algorithm.
