Enforcing Perfect Failure Detection

Abstract

Perfect failure detectors can correctly decide whether a computer is crashed. However; it is impossible to implement a perfect failure detector in purely asynchronous systems. We show how to enforce perfect failure detection in timed distributed systems with hardware watchdogs. The two main system model assumptions are ( I ) each computer can measure time… (More)
