Fault tolerant distributed shared memory algorithms

  title={Fault tolerant distributed shared memory algorithms},
  author={Michael Stumm and Songnian Zhou},
Distributed shared memory (DSM) has received increased attention as a mechanism for interprocess communication in looselycoupled distributed systems because of its perceived advantages over direct use of message passing or remote procedure calls. One problem with most DSM algorithms proposed to date, however, is that they do not tolerate faults. In this paper. we extend four basic DSM algorithms to tolerate single host failures and argue that this degree of fault tolerance is sufficient for… CONTINUE READING
