This paper proposes a load balancing algorithm for distributed use of a cluster computer. It uses load information including CPU queue length, CPU utilisation, memory utilisation and network traffic to decide the load of each node. This algorithm is compared to an algorithm using only the CPU queue length. The performance evaluation results show that the proposed algorithm performs well.
