The existing probe based distributed deadlock detection algorithms work only in fault free environments. But any network is prone to failures. So the existing probe based algorithms fail in such fault prone environment. This algorithm modifies the existing probe based algorithm to adapt in faulty environment also.
This paper is a position paper on the nature of dynamic systems. While there is an agreement on the definition of what a static distributed system is, there is no agreed definition on what a dynamic distributed system is. This paper is a first step in that direction. To that end, it emphasizes two orthogonal dimensions that are present in any dynamic… (More)
