Improving the Fault Resilience of Overlay Multicast for Media Streaming
This paper addresses the problem of fault resilience of overlay-based live media streaming from two aspects: (1) how to construct a stable multicast tree that minimizes the negative impact of frequent member departures on existing overlay, and (2) how to efficiently recover from packet errors caused by end-system or network failures. In particular, this paper makes two contributions: (1) A distributed Reliability-Oriented Switching Tree (ROST) algorithm that minimizes the failure correlation among tree nodes. By exploiting both bandwidth and time properties, the algorithm constructs a more reliable multicast tree than existing algorithms that solely minimize tree depth, while not compromising the quality of the tree in terms of service delay and incurring only a small protocol overhead; (2) A simple Cooperative Error Recovery (CER) protocol that helps recover from packet errors efficiently. Recognizing that a single recovery source is usually incapable of providing timely delivery o...
