Issue description
Currently, the configuration of a load-balancing aklgorithm is similar to this:
# Load-balancing algorithm: proportional, manual, nodethreads, rl, autotuned or user-defined custom algorithm
jppf.load.balancing.algorithm = <algorithm_name>
 
# name the set of algorithm parameters, aka "profile" 
jppf.load.balancing.strategy = <profile_name>
 
# profile / set of parameters
strategy.<profile_name>.<parameter_1> = <value_1>
...
strategy.<profile_name>.<parameter_N> = <value_N>
I see a few issues with this:
  • the use of the term "strategy" is unintuitive and can lead to some confusion
  • all properties should start with the "jppf." prefix
  • additionally, the documentation and the configuration files of the driver distribution should be in sync
So instead, we should be able to write the load-balancer configuration like this:
jppf.load.balancing.algorithm = <algorithm_name>
jppf.load.balancing.profile = <profile_name>
jppf.load.balancing.profile.<profile_name>.<parameter_1> = <value_1>
...
jppf.load.balancing.profile.<profile_name>.<parameter_N> = <value_N>
