TINA is an open, object oriented, distributed telecom architecture, with many concepts taken directly

from the latest computer research. In TINA, instances of the same object type can be placed on different

physical nodes. Therefore, the network performance can be improved by introducing load balancing

algorithms. These algorithms should distribute the traffic between the object instances in such way that

the overall throughput and setup time are improved. We discuss and examine a number of simple

distributed load balancing algorithms, that do not require any extra load information exchange between

the nodes. The results show that it is difficult to find an algorithm that behave well for all traffic

situations. The main problem is that the algorithms have not enough information about the load situation

on the different nodes, since no load information is exchanged between the nodes. This problem can be

solved by adding the feasibility of load status information to the TINA protocols.
