Optimistic replication is an important technique for achieving high availability in distributed file systems. A key problem in optimistic replication is using semantic knowledge of objects to resolve concurrent updates from multiple partitions. In this paper, we describe how the Coda File System resolves partitioned updates to directories. The central result of our work is that logging of updates is a simple yet efficient and powerful technique for directory resolution in Unix file systems… CONTINUE READING
