Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Improving load balancing mechanisms of software defined networks using open flow
by Kodela, Venkatesh, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 31; 10141520
Abstract (Summary)

Software Defined Networks (SDNs) are an active research topic in Networking. This project proposes an approach to a load balancer with the implementation of SDN. This SDN load balancer uses the Round-Robin algorithm. The design topology consists of the SDN-switch and an Open Day Light (ODL) controller. The packet entries are kept in the flow table that are stored in the data plane. This project separates the control and data plane and regulates the controller using ODL. This separation eases the controlling of load balancers. By using this technique, the system becomes directly programmable and agile. The requests from different clients will be directed to various pre-defined servers in the Round-Robin fashion. This project successfully achieves load balancing using the SDN controller and reduces the response time as well as the latency.
