Proxy cache servers are used to deal with the increasing demand for information on the Internet by caching the frequently referenced web objects. It is common to have more than one proxy cache servers being installed in one local network. The problem of load balancing then arises as organizations want to utilise the resources in the best way. This article proposes two methods to tackle the load balancing problem. The two methods are based on the notion of autonomy oriented computation where entities in the model are allowed to make local decisions and they only need to interact with local neighbors.
