Algorithms for mutual exclusion that adapt to the current degree of contention are developed. Afilter and a leader election algorithm form the basic building blocks. The algorithms achieve system response times that are independent of the total number of processes and governed instead by the...
Implementations of inter-process communication and synchronization in distributed systems usually rely on the existence of unique ids for the processes. We consider the problem of generating such ids for identical processes in a shared-variable system. A randomized protocol that assigns distinct...
In a distributed system mutual exclusion is often used to maintain consistency when restricted operations are performed. Mechanisms guaranteeing mutual exclusions should be both resilient and efficient. Resiliency implies high resource availability in the face of failures, while efficiency...
