With the advent of high speed networks, distributed cluster computing and metacomputing have assumed an enormous interest. However, software methods and techniques to make the full potential of these distributed environments available, are not yet mature. In this paper, we focus on dynamic load balancing of resources and applications as one of the crucial techniques to optimize performance in distributed environments. Some design and implementation details are described, and early experimental results are presented.
