Software-defined networking (SDN) provides many benefits, including traffic programmability, agility, and network automation. However, budget constraints burdened with technical (e.g., scalability, fault tolerance, security issues) and, sometimes, business challenges (user acceptance and confidence of network operators) make providers indecisive for full SDN deployment. Therefore, incremental deployment of SDN functionality through the placement of a limited set of SDN devices among traditional devices represents a rational and efficient environment that can offer customers modern and more data-intensive services. However, while hybrid SDN provides many benefits, it also has specific challenges addressed in the literature. This paper answers one of these challenges by presenting the research and development of a new load balancing scheme in the hybrid SDN environment built with a minimal SDN device set (controller and one switch). We propose a novel load balancing scheme to monitor current server load indicators and apply multi-parameter metrics for scheduling connections to balance the load on the servers as efficiently as possible. The base of the new load balancing scheme is continuous monitoring of server load indicators and implementations of multi-parameter metrics (CPU load, I/O Read, I/O Write, Link Upload, Link Download) for scheduling connections. The testing performed on servers aims to balance the server's load as efficiently as possible. The obtained results have shown that this mechanism achieves better results than existing load balancing schemes in traditional and SDN networks. Moreover, a proposed load balancing scheme can be used with various services and applied in any client-server environment.
