Failure models characterise the expected component failures in fault-tolerant computing. In the context of distributed systems, a failure model usually consists of two parts: a functional part specifying in what way individual processing entities may fail and a structural part specifying the potential scope of failures within the system. Such models must be expressive enough to cover all relevant practical situations, but must also be simple enough to allow uncomplicated reasoning about fault… CONTINUE READING
