A synchronous communication protocol is designed and implemented for a distributed real-time system. The protocol operates on hierarchical rings and forms the communication backbone of a cluster based distributed system model that is designed to provide various distributed system functions such as clock synchronization, total event ordering, process group management, multicasting and fault tolerance. The multilevel hierarchy of the cluster based system model allows intracluster communication to… CONTINUE READING
