Cloud computing is solely network dependent technology which completely rely on internet. The load balancing is one of the vital parameter for judging the efficiency of cloud computing. It continuously perform check on the VMs and cloudlets, so that none of the VMs get overloaded, while some machines still have space to allocate the cloudlet. In such cases load balancing is done to use resources in efficient manner. Here, we proposed a new approach called modified honey bee behavior approach which is based on HBB-LB. In this modified honey bee algorithm, we keep account of cloudlet size, VM capacity and priority. Knowledge of these entities of cloud environment is very important to allocate cloudlets to VM. The utilization of VM resources should be maximum and cloudlet will be allocated to that VM which is best fit by principle of optimality (on basis of memory allocation) with minimum number of high priority task. Modified HBB-LB keeps track of priorities of cloudlets, so high priority cloudlet should not wait in queue as compared to other cloudlets. We have compared modified honey bee approach with some previous load balancing approaches and got minimum average response time, makespan time and degree of imbalance.

Load Balancing

In this paper, we designed modified honey bee load balancing technique inspired by honey bee behavior and HBB-LB. In modified honey bee approach, it keep track of load of all VMs, its capacity and cloudlet size, to ensure that the assignment of jobs to best feasible VMs. Allocation process of jobs should be in such a way that VM resources should be utilized in optimized way to reduce the wastage of resources. Proposed technique also consider the priority of cloudlets while assigning. Modified Honey Bee load balancing technique diminish the wastage of resource as it was main drawback of HBBLB, because of prior information of cloudlet size , VM capacity and available free processing capacity left with VM. Priority based allocation is there to give particular importance to particular cloudlets.
