Minimizing timestamp size for completely asynchronous optimistic recovery with minimal rollback

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this paper, we present a new protocol for optimistic rollback recovery in distributed systems. This protocol is completely asynchronous, minimizes rollback, and is independent of any particular underlying distributed computation to be made fault tolerant. This protocol improves on earlier work in asynchronous optimistic rollback recovery in that previous protocols either sacrificed some of these properties or required larger timestamps. Furthermore, we establish that this protocol is optimal, in that no rollback recovery protocol can achieve these properties and have asymptotically smaller timestamps.
