Weak-consistency group communication and membership by Richard Golding( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Many distributed systems for wide-area networks can be built conveniently, and operate efficiently and correctly, using a weak consistency group communication mechanism. This mechanism organizes a set of principals into a single logical entity, and provides methods to multicast messages to the members. A weak consistency distributed system allows the principals in the group to differ on the value of shared state at any given instant, as long as they will eventually converge to a single, consistent value. A group containing many principals and using weak consistency can provide the reliability, performance, and scalability necessary for wide-area systems. I have developed a framework for constructing group communication systems, for classifying existing distributed system tools, and for constructing and reasoning about a particular group communication model. It has four components: message delivery, message ordering, group membership, and the application. Each component may have a different implementation, so that the group mechanism can be tailored to application requirements. The framework supports a new message delivery protocol, called timestamped anti-entropy, which provides reliable, eventual message delivery; is efficient; and tolerates most transient processor and network failures. It can be combined with message ordering implementations that provide ordering guarantees ranging from unordered to total, causal delivery. A new group membership protocol completes the set, providing temporarily inconsistent membership views resilient to up to k simultaneous principal failures. The Refdbms distributed bibliographic database system, which has been constructed using this framework, is used as an example. Refdbms databases can be replicated on many different sites, using the group communication system described here."
Accessing replicated data in a large-scale distributed system by Richard Golding( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Replicating a data object improves the availability of the data, and can improve access latency by locating copies of the object near to their use. When accessing replicated objects across an internetwork, the time to access different replicas is non-uniform. Further, the probability that a particular replica is inaccessible is much higher in an internetwork than in a local-area network (LAN) because of partitions and the many intermediate hosts and networks that can fail. We report three replica-accessing algorithms which can be tuned to minimize either access latency or the number of messages sent. These algorithms assume only an unreliable datagram mechanism for communicating with replicas. Our work extends previous investigations into the performance of replication algorithms by assuming unreliable communication. We have investigated the performance of these algorithms by measuring the communication behavior of the Internet, and by building discrete-event simulations based on our measurements. We find that almost all message failures are either transient or due to long-term host failure, so that retrying messages a few times adds only a small amount to the overall message traffic while improving both access latency as long as the probability of message failure is small. Moreover, the algorithms which retry messages on failure provide significantly improved availability over those which do not."
Accessing replicated data in an internetwork by Richard Golding( Book )

Abstract: "When accessing a replicated data object across an internetwork, the time to access different replicas is non-uniform. Further, the probability that a particular replica is inaccessible is much higher in an internetwork than in a local-area network because of partitions and the many intermediate hosts and networks that can fail. We report three replica-accessing algorithms which can be tuned to minimize either the time spent on the access, or the number of messages sent. We have obtained performance results for these algorithms by simulation. We find an inverse relationship between the time spent processing an access and the number of messages required to complete the access."

Scalable concurrency control and recovery for shared storage arrays by Khalil Amiri( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Shared storage arrays enable thousands of storage devices to be shared and directly accessed by end hosts over switched system-area networks, promising databases and filesystems highly scalable, reliable storage. In such systems, however, concurrent host I/Os can span multiple shared devices and access overlapping ranges potentially leading to inconsistencies for redundancy codes and for data read by end hosts. In order to enable existing applications to run unmodified and simplify the development of future ones, we desire a shared storage array to provide the illusion of a single controller without the scalability bottleneck and single point of failure of an actual single controller. In this paper, we show how rapidly increasing storage device intelligence coupled with storage's special characteristics can be successfully exploited to arrive at a high performance solution to this storage management problem. In particular, we examine four concurrency control schemes and specialize them to shared storage arrays; two centralized ones: simple server locking, and server locking with leased callbacks; and two distributed ones based on device participation: distributed locking using storage-device-embedded lock servers and timestamp ordering using loosely synchronized clocks. Simulations results show that both centralized locking schemes suffer from scalability limitations. Moreover, callback locking is particularly suspect if applications do not have much inherent locality and if the storage system introduces false sharing. Distributed concurrency control with device support is attractive as it scales control capacity with storage and performance capacity and offers the opportunity to piggyback lock/ordering messages on operation requests, eliminating message latency costs. Simulations show that both storage-optimized device-based protocols exhibit close to ideal scaling achieving 90-95% of the throughput possible under totally unprotected operation. Furthermore, timestamp ordering uses less network resources, is free from deadlocks and has performance advantages under high load. We show how timestamp ordering can be extended with careful operation history recording to ensure efficient failure recovery without inducing I/Os under normal operation. This brings the overhead of concurrency control and recovery to a negligible few percent thereby realizing the scalability potential of the shared array I/O architecture."

A weak-consistency architecture for distributed information services by Richard Golding( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Services provided on wide-area networks like the Internet present several challenges. The reliability, performance, and scalability expected of such services often requires they be implemented using multiple, replicated servers. One possible architecture implements the replicas as a weak-consistency process group. This architecture provides good scalability and availability, handles portable computer systems, and minimizes the effect of users on each other. The key principles in this architecture are component independence, a process group protocol that provides small summaries of database contents, caching database slices, and the quorum multicast client-to-server communication protocol. A distributed bibliographic database system serves as an example."
Group membership in the epidemic style by Richard Golding( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Existing group membership mechanisms provide consistent views of membership changes. However, they require heavyweight synchronous multicast protocols. We present a new lightweight group membership mechanism that allows temporary inconsistencies in membership views. This mechanism uses epidemic communication techniques to ensure that all group members eventually converge to a consistent view of the membership. Members can join or leave groups, and we show that the mechanism is resilient to k [<or =] n - 2 members failing by crashing, where n is the number of members in the group."

End-to-end performance prediction for the Internet : work in progress by Richard Golding( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Many applications designed for wide-area systems use replication to provide a service at multiple locations. From which site should a client choose to obtain service? A client can specify its needs in terms of communcations latency, bandwidth, or error rate. This specification must be matched against the expected performance available from each site. I present the results of two experiments that measured end-to-end performance, and discuss how the results can be used for prediction."
The performance of weak-consistency replication protocols by Richard Golding( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Weak-consistency replication protocols can be used to build wide-area services that are scalable, fault-tolerant, and useful for mobile computer systems. We have developed the timestamped anti-entropy protocol, which provides reliable eventual delivery with a variety of message orderings. Pairs of replicas periodically exchange update messages; in this way updates eventually propagate to all replicas. In this paper we present a detailed analysis of the fault tolerance and the consistency provided by this protocol. The protocol is extremely robust in the face of site and network failure, and it scales well to large numbers of replicas."
