We determine what information about failures is necessary and sufficient to solve Consensus in asynchronous distributed systems subject to crash failures. In Chandra and Toueg , it is shown that <italic>W</italic>, a failure detector that provides surprisingly little information about which processes have crashed, is sufficient to solve Consensus in… (More)
1 Background and overview In a shared-memory system, asynchronous processes communicate via typed shared objects, such as registers , test&sets, and queues. The need to implement an object of one type from objects of other types arises often in such systems. Recent research has focussed mostly on wait-free implementations. Such an implementation guarantees… (More)
We prove that the primary-partition group membership problem cannot be solved in asynchronous systems with crash failures, even if one allows the removal or killing of non-faulty processes that are erroneously suspected to have crashed.
We determine the weakest failure detectors to solve several fundamental problems in distributed message-passing systems, for <i>all</i> environments -- i.e., regardless of the number and timing of crashes. The problems that we consider are: implementing an atomic register, solving consensus, solving quittable consensus (a variant of consensus in which… (More)
Reliable concurrent processing of transactions in a database system is examined. Since serializability, the conventional concurrency control correctness criterion, is not adequate in the presence of common failures, another theory of correctness is proposed, involving the concepts of <italic>commit serializability, recoverability,</italic> and… (More)
