The Failure Trace Archive: Enabling Comparative Analysis of Failures in Diverse Distributed Systems
With the increasing functionality and complexity of distributed systems, resource failures are inevitable. While numerous models and algorithms for dealing with failures exist, the lack of public trace data sets and tools have prevented meaningful comparisons. To facilitate the design, validation, and comparison of fault-tolerant models and algorithms, we have created the Failure Trace Archive (FTA) as an online public repository of availability traces taken from diverse parallel and distributed systems. Our main contributions in this study are the following. First, we describe the design of the archive, in particular the rationale of the standard FTA format, and the design of a toolbox that facilitates automated analysis of trace data sets. Second, applying the toolbox, we present a uniform comparative analysis with statistics and models of failures in nine distributed systems. Third, we show how different interpretations of these data sets can result in different conclusions. This e...
