On the Use and Implementation of Message Logging

  title={On the Use and Implementation of Message Logging},
  author={E. N. Elnozahy and Willy Zwaenepoel},
Message logging has long been advocated as offering better failure-free performance than coordinated checkpointing. On the contrary, we present a number of experiments showing that for compute-intensive applications executing in parallel on clusters of workstations, message logging has higher failure-free overhead than coordinated checkpointing. Message logging protocols, however, result in much shorter output latency than coordinated checkpointing. Therefore, message logging should be used for… CONTINUE READING
