Abstract: In this thesis the problem of load sharing in distributed computer systems is investigated. Fundamental issues that need to be resolved in order to implement a load sharing scheme in a distributed system are identified and possible solutions suggested. A load sharing scheme has been designed and implemented on an existing Unix United system. The performance of this load sharing scheme is then measured for different types of programs. It is demonstrated that a load sharing scheme can be implemented on the Unix United systems using the existing mechanisms provided by the Newcastle Connection, and without making any significant changes to the existing software. It is concluded that under some circumstances a substantial improvement in the system performance can be obtained by the load sharing scheme.
