Abstract:

Sender-based message logging supports transparent fault tolerance in distributed systems in which all communication is through messages and all processes execute deterministically between received messages. It uses a pessimistic message logging protocol that requires no specialized hardware. Sender-based message logging differs from previous message logging methods in that it logs each message in the local volatile memory of the machine from which it was sent, thus greatly reducing the overhead of message logging.
