Reliable communication in the presence of failures

Kenneth P. Birman, Thomas A. Joseph
1987 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
No information survives a failure (by fault tolerance we refer to continued operation in the presence of failures, not recovery from "stable" storage).  ...  Clearly, failure detection by time-out cannot be more reliable than the underlying communication system: A series of message losses can always mimic a failure.  ...  LIMITATIONS One weakness of the work described in this paper is its tendency to block in the presence of partitioning failures when two or more subgroups of operational sites form, within which communication  ...

2008 Proceedings of the 2008 conference of the center for advanced studies on collaborative research meeting of minds - CASCON '08  
In this paper, we present our experience to estimate the reliability of a large distributed system composed of several hundred points of presence.  ...  The system's reliability metric is required by contract to be obtained. A simple approach is presented to accurately approximate the desired metrics.  ...  We have defined a reliability estimation function that weights the probability of being at a specific failure state by the fraction of points of presence impacted by a specific service outage.  ...
