Rajdoot: A Remote Procedure Call Mechanism Supporting Orphan Detection and Killing

  title={Rajdoot: A Remote Procedure Call Mechanism Supporting Orphan Detection and Killing},
  author={Fabio Panzieri and Santosh K. Shrivastava},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Software Eng.},
Rajdoot is an RPC mechanism with a number of fault tolerance capabilities. The paper first discusses the reliability related issues and then describes how these issues have been dealt with in the RPC design. Rajdoot supports exactly once semantics with call nesting capability and incorporates effective measures for orphan detection and killing. Previously reported RPC mechanisms have not paid adequate attention to orphan treatment issues. Performance figures show that the reliability measures… CONTINUE READING
