This is the Ninth Quarterly Progress Report prepared covering the Georgia Tech Research Program in Fully Distributed Processing Systems FDPS. The Georgia Tech Research Program in Fully Distributed Processing Systems is a comprehensive investigation of data processing systems in which both the physical and logical components are extremely loosely coupled while operating with a high degree of control autonomy at the component level. The definition of the specific class of multiple computer systems being investigated, and the operational characteristics and features of those systems is motivated by the desire to advance the state-of-the-art for that class of systems that will deliver a high proportion of the benefits currently being claimed for distributed processing systems. The scope of individual topics being investigated under this program ranges from formal modeling and theoretical studies to empirical examinations of prototype systems and simulation models. Also included within the scope of the program are areas such as the utilization of FDPSs and their interaction with management operations and structure.
