Fault tolerance with active replication and load balancing are two complementary techniques. Their marriage not only enhances a distributed system's robustness, but also improves a distributed system's efficiency. This paper analyzes the pros and cons of both techniques, presents a novel load balancing framework for fault tolerant systems with active replication. Hierarchical architecture is described in detail. Further, three potential task scheduler group selection methods are given out and their advantages and disadvantages are addressed and compared.
