Generating Fast Atomic Commit from Hyperfast Consensus [chapter]

Fabíola Gonçalves Pereira Greve, Jean-Pierre Le Narzul
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
One of the presented protocols outperforms existing equivalent solutions that are based on the use of failure detectors.  ...  This work introduces a highly modular derivation of fast non-blocking atomic commit protocols. Modularity is achieved by the use of consensus protocols as completely independent services.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Michel Hurfin from IRISA Labs at Rennes (France) for its valuable contribution to this work.  ...

The generic consensus service

R. Guerraoui, A. Schiper
2001 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
AbstractÐThis paper describes a modular approach for the construction of fault-tolerant agreement protocols. The approach is based on a generic consensus service.  ...  We illustrate our approach on the construction of various fault-tolerant agreement protocols, such as nonblocking atomic commitment, group membership, view synchronous communication, and total order multicast  ...  This paper is an extended and revised version of a paper that appeared, under the title ªConsensus Service: A Modular Approach for Building Agreement Protocols in Distributed Systems,º in the Proceedings  ...

Supporting Linearizable Semantics in Replicated Databases

Luis Rodrigues, Nuno Carvalho, Emili Miedes
2008 2008 Seventh IEEE International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications  
The proposed algorithm supports the use of quorums to trade the availability/efficiency of read and write operations, making a bridge between consensus-based and quorum based solutions for database replication  ...  Furthermore, the algorithm offers better performance for linearizable read-only transactions with a negligible impact on write transactions.  ...  Furthermore, contrary to primary-backup style solutions, that redirect all read operations to a single replica, we allow the parallel execution of read-only transactions in multiple replicas.  ...

Concurrency versus availability: atomicity mechanisms for replicated data

Maurice Herlihy
1987 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
This paper explores an alternative approach to managing replicated data by presenting two replication methods in which concurrency control and replica management are handled by a single integrated protocol  ...  These integrated protocols permit more concurrency than independent protocols, and they allow availability and concurrency to be traded off: Constraints on concurrency may be relaxed if constraints on  ...  If any of these quorums were required to intersect, then G would not be >g-closed, a contradiction.  ...

Model Checking a Modular-Structured Nonblocking Atomic Commitment Protocol for Asynchronous Distributed Systems

Eun-Hye Choi, Keishi Okamoto, Tatsuhiro Tsuchiya, Tohru Kikuno
2009 2009 Software Technologies for Future Dependable Distributed Systems  
Various principal fault-tolerant agreement protocols for asynchronous distributed systems, such as atomic commitment and view synchrony, can be constructed in a modular way which is based on consensus  ...  In this paper, we focus on a modularstructured nonblocking atomic commitment (NBAC) protocol as a case study and propose a method to verify the protocol by model checking.  ...  Just before the completion of a transaction, nodes have to solve an atomic commitment problem [1] in order to decide on commit or abort of the transaction.  ...
