The paper addresses the problem of reliably multicasting messages within a cluster, with an advertised latency bound that would be met with a preset confidence level. The system developed here offers, prior to an invocation, probabilistic guarantees on reliability and latency bounds and, post invocation, strives to achieve the offer chosen by the application. Pre-invocation guarantees enable destinations to instantly build useful common knowledge about delivered multicasts with a correctness… CONTINUE READING
