Abstract

This draft proposes a method of algorithmic load balancing that enables multiple, cooperating servers to decide which one should service a client, without requiring participating servers to exchange information. It proposes a computable server selection mechanism for the DHCP or DHC Failover Protocol. In addition, it provides for the use of the same mechanism to govern the target server selection of a forwarding agent such as a BOOTP relay.
