FAPP: A New Fairness Algorithm for Priority Process Mutual Exclusion in Distributed Systems

Sukendu Kanrar, Nabendu Chaki
2010 Journal of Networks  
One major limitation of the token based mutual exclusion algorithms for distributed environment like Raymond's well-known work on invertedtree topology lies in the lack of fairness.  ...  Another aspect of the problem is in handling the prioritized processes. In one of our earlier works, both fairness and priority have been addressed in proposing an algorithm MRA-P.  ...  MRA-P ALGORITHM The MRA-P algorithm offers a solution for prioritized mutual exclusion in a distributed system. An additional data structure is maintained in all the nodes as introduced below.  ...
