Distributed Fault Tolerance entails detecting errors, con fini g the damage caused, recovery from the errors, and providing cont inued service on a network of co-operating machines. Functional languages po tentially offer benefits for distributed fault tolerance: many computations are pure, and hence have no side-effects to be reversed during error recovery. Moreo ver functional languages have a high-level runtime system (RTS) where computa tions and data are readily manipulated. We propose a… CONTINUE READING
