The problem of selecting the load index or indices to be used in dynamic load balancing policies is discussed. One such index, based on a mean-value equation, is proposed, and its main characteristics investigated. The index is obtained assuming that the goal of the load balancing scheme is the minimization of the response time of the user command being considered for possible remote execution. A few major obstacles to the practical use of the index are also discussed.
