Asynchronous failure detectors
Failure detectors — oracles that provide information about process crashes — are an important ion for crash tolerance in distributed systems. Although current failure-detector...

Failure Detectors Encapsulate Fairness
Failure detectors are commonly viewed as abstractions for the synchronism present in distributed system models. However, investigations into the exact amount of synchronism encapsu...

Fast Asynchronous Uniform Consensus in Real-Time Distributed Systems
We investigate whether asynchronous computational models and asynchronous algorithms can be considered for designing real-time distributed fault-tolerant systems. A priori, the lac...

A methodology to design arbitrary failure detectors for distributed protocols
Nowadays, there are many protocols able to cope with process crashes, but, unfortunately, a process crash represents only a particular faulty behavior. Handling tougher failures (...

Virtually-Synchronous Communication Based on a Weak Failure Suspector
Failure detectors (or, more accurately Failure Suspectors { FS) appear to be a fundamental service upon which to build fault-tolerant, distributed applications. This paper shows t...

An Unreliable Failure Detector for Unknown and Mobile Networks
This paper presents an asynchronous implementation of a failure detector for unknown and mobile networks. Our approach does not rely on timers. Neither the composition nor the numb...

Experimental Evaluation of the QoS of Failure Detectors on Wide Area Network
This paper describes an experiment performed on Wide Area Network to assess and fairly compare the Quality of Service provided by a large family of failure detectors. Failure dete...

Transient Fault Detectors
We present fault detectors for transient faults, (i.e. corruptions of the memory of the processors, but not of the code of the processors). We distinguish fault detectors for tasks...

Optimal Implementation of the Weakest Failure Detector for Solving Consensus
The concept of unreliable failure detector was introduced by Chandra and Toueg [2] as a mechanism that provides information about process failures. Depending on the properties the...

Modeling Consensus in a Process Calculus
Abstract. We give a process calculus model that formalizes a wellknown algorithm (introduced by Chandra and Toueg) solving consensus in the presence of a particular class of failur...
