A Fault-Tolerant Algorithm for Decentralized On-line Quorum Adaptation

Abstract

A quorum-based distributed mutual exclusion protocol requires each processor in a distributed system to obtain permission from a quorum of processors before accessing a resource that cannot be concurrently shared. To prevent failed quorum members from blocking access to the resource, it is desirable to remove failed processors from quorums when failures are… (More)
