Modelling the Performance of Distributed Database Protocols for Real Time Environments

  title={Modelling the Performance of Distributed Database Protocols for Real Time Environments},
  author={Alan Allwright and Chris Steketee},
Distributed database management protocols are usually based on the assumption that data consistency is paramount. However, this assumption is invalid for distributed real-time applications such as ship combat systems and air traffic control, where data availability is crucial and may need to be achieved at the expense of guarantees of data consistency. Two protocols designed for real-time combat systems which achieve availability by relaxing consistency restraints are ADDAM (ARE (Admiralty… CONTINUE READING
