In this work, we present results on analyzing the behavior of a parallel distributed genetic algorithm over different LAN technologies. Our goal is to offer a study on the potential impact in the search mechanics when shifting between LANs. We will address three LANs: a Fast Ethernet network, a Gigabit Ethernet network, and a Myrinet network. We also study the importance of several parameters of the migration policy. The whole analysis will use the DNA fragment assembly problem to show the actual power and utility of the proposed distributed technique.
