In this paper, we explain an implementation of an accrual failure detector, that we call the . failure detector. The particularity of the . failure detector is that it dynamically adjusts to current network conditions the scale on which the suspicion level is expressed. We have done the experiment in a LAN in a whole day and evaluated the behavior of our . failure detector. Then we discuss on the parameters of the failure detector based on our experimental result. 


Implementation and performance evaluation of an adaptable failure detector
This paper proposes a new implementation of a failure detector which is adaptable and can support scalable applications, and dissociate two aspects: a basic estimation of the expected arrival date to provide a short detection time and an adaptation of the quality of service according to application needs.

The φ Accrual Failure Detector
This paper presents a novel abstraction, called accrual failure dete ctors, that emphasizes flexibility and expressiveness and can serve as a basic building block to implementing failu re detectors in distributed systems. Expand
Definition and specification of accrual failure detectors
A rigorous definition for accrual failure detectors is provided, it is demonstrated that changing the interaction model leads to no loss in computational power, and several possible implementations are presented. Expand
Failure detectors for large-scale distributed systems
Traditional implementations of failure detectors are often tuned for running over local networks and fail to address important problems found in wide-area distributed systems, such as grid systems. Expand

This work proposes a set of QoS metrics to specify failure detectors for systems with probabilistic behaviors, i.e. for systems where message delays and message losses follow some probability distributions, and gives a new failure detector algorithm and analyze its QoS in terms of these metrics.

Failure detectors as first class objects
This work pleads for an intermediate approach where failure detectors are first-class objects, and describes an interesting result of a composition that mixes push and pull failure monitoring, and shows how scalability issues may be addressed by using a hierarchical failure detection configuration.

Unreliable failure detectors for reliable distributed systems
It is proved that Consensus and Atomic Broadcast are reducible to each other in asynchronous systems with crash failures; thus, the above results also apply to Atomic Broadcast. Expand
A Gossip-Style Failure Detection Service
A new protocol based on gossiping is described that does scale well and provides timely detection, and is extended to discover and leverage the underlying network topology for much improved resource utilization. Expand
A fault detection service for wide area distributed computations
A fault detection service designed to be incorporated, in a modular fashion, into distributed computing systems, tools, or applications, using well-known techniques based on unreliable fault detectors to detect and report component failure, while allowing the user to trade off timeliness of reporting against false positive rates.

Comparison of failure detectors and group membership: performance study of two atomic broadcast algorithms
A performance evaluation methodology that can be generalized to analyze many kinds of fault-tolerant algorithms is presented and found that the group membership based algorithm has an advantage in terms of performance and resiliency in Scenario 2, whereas the failure detector based algorithm offers better performance in the other scenarios.
