Sample text

The purpose of m0 is to deposite $100 to account B after P0 has debited account A. 2(a). If P0 crashes after sending the deposit request (m0 ), and P1 crashes after taking the checkpoint C1 , upon recovery, P1 ’s state would reflect a deposit of $100 (from account A) while P0 ’s state would not reflect the corresponding debit operation. Consequently, $100 would appear to have come from nowhere, which obviously is not what had happened. In essence, the global state constructed using the wrong set of checkpoints does not correspond to a state that could have happened since the initial state of the distributed system.

When the coordinator receives the saved notification from all other processes, it switches to the new checkpoint, and sends a resume message along each of its outgoing channel. The coordinator then resumes normal execution. Rule for the participant: Upon receiving a checkpoint notification, the participant stops its normal execution and in turn sends a checkpoint message along each of its outgoing channel. The participant then waits for the corresponding checkpoint message from all its incoming channels.

What the system should do for each service is defined as a set of functions according to a functional specification for the system. The status of a system is determined by its state. The state of a practical system is usually very complicated. A system may consist of one or more processes spanning over one or more nodes, and each process might consist of one or more threads. The state of the system is determined collectively by the state of the processes and threads in the system. The state of a process typically consists of the values of its registers, stack, heap, file descriptors, and the kernel state.
