Distributed virtual environments tend to become a de facto solution for large-scale networked virtual environments. One of the key issues and problems that need to be handled in the design of a scalable and effective distributed virtual environment system is the partitioning problem, which refers to the efficient assignment of the system?s workload to the available resources of the system. This paper presents an object driven partitioning approach based on the partitioning algorithm of Lui & Chan, who proposed a three step technique for balancing the workload among the servers of the Distributed Virtual Environment.
