In Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), dedicatedintermediate nodes called load balancers are usually deployed in data centers (DC) in order to balance the load among multiple instances of an application service and to optimize the resource utilization. However, the addition of these nodes increases the installation and operational cost of DCs. These load balancers distribute incoming flows to multiple outgoing ports usually by hashing them. Several techniques are used in order to select the outgoing ports e.g. round robin, queue length, feedback from neighbors etc. Such load balancing approaches do not considergetting live feedback from the service end and therefore are not able to dynamically change the amount of allocated resources. In this paper, a distributed load management scheme isproposed for service oriented networks based on the currentInternet architecture. In this scheme, lightweight interconnected management agents are used to decide the availability for a particular service instance and help in optimal distribution of the flows. The proposed scheme can also be applied in other emerging internetworking architectures such as RINA.
