Abstract:

POSER is a process organisation to simplify error recovery intended for use in fault - tolerant, distributed computer systems running real - time programs. This memorandum describes the process organisation used in POSER and how the organisation has been experimentally implemented in a multi-computer simulation. Application program design has been studied by producing a large radar tracking program which runs on the POSER simulation. A version of the radar program exists in MASCOT and some comparisons of the two complete programs have been made. Finally, some broad comparisons of the MASCOT and POSER methods are made. Author
