Virtually-synchronous communication based on a weak failure suspector

Abstract

Failure detectors (or, more accurately, failure suspectors, or FS) appear to be a fundamental service upon which to build fault-tolerant, distributed applications. It is shown that an FS with very weak semantics (i.e. that delivers failure and recovery information in no specific order) suffices to implement virtually synchronous communication (VSC) in an… (More)
