Abstract

A large number of peer processes are cooperating by exchanging messages in autonomic, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems. In this paper, we discuss a Hierarchical Group (HG) protocol aimed at reducing communication and computation overheads for a large number of processes. A HG is composed of disjointed subgroups. Each subgroup has gateway processes which communicate with other subgroups. Even if messages are locally causally ordered in a subgroup, the messages may not be globally causally ordered in a group. We discuss how to globally causally order messages by using local synchronisation mechanisms of subgroups. In addition, we present an evaluation of the protocol.
