A checkpoint algorithm for a mobile distributed computing system (MDCS) needs to handle many new issues like: mobility, low bandwidth of wireless channels, lack of stable storage on mobile nodes, disconnections, limited battery power and high failure rate of mobile nodes. These issues make traditional checkpointing techniques unsuitable for mobile distributed systems. Coordinated checkpointing may be useful to checkpoint MDCS if it is non-blocking and require minimum number of processes to… CONTINUE READING
