Quick Reference

When a router uses an adaptive routing algorithm to decide the next computer to which to transfer a packet of data, it examines the traffic conditions in order to determine a route which is as near optimal as possible. For example, it tries to pick a route which involves communication lines which have light traffic. This strategy is in contrast to a non-adaptive routing algorithm.
