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 [1996], 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 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)
