Implementing Fail-Silent Nodes for Distributed Systems

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Paul EzhilchelvanORCiD, Emeritus Professor Santosh Shrivastava, Dr Neil Speirs



A fail-silent node is a self-checking node that either functions correctly or stops functioning after an internal failure is detected. Such a node can be constructed from a number of conventional processors. In a software-implemented fail-silent node, the non-faulty processors of the node need to execute message order and comparison protocols to 'keep in step' and check each other respectively. In this paper the design and implementation of efficient protocols for a two processor fail-sile
