In many practical cases, during a system failure or downtime, all non-failed components are kept idle to eliminate further damage to the system. This phenomenon is known as suspended animation (SA) because the aging process of the non-failed components is suspended. Suspended animation introduces dependencies among the component states. Therefore, we cannot… CONTINUE READING
