|Title:||Distributed recovery block scheme-based fault tolerant message passing system||Authors:||Gu, Wei.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Computer science and engineering::Computer systems organization::Computer-communication networks||Issue Date:||2000||Abstract:||This thesis presents a fault-tolerant message passing system incorporating a variation of the distributed recovery block approach. Inter processor communication is one of the key activities of parallel and distributed computer systems. Message passing in large interconnection networks is a critical part of high performance computing and it has attracted a great deal of attention in the recent years. In many applications, the requirements for efficient inter processor communication and system reliability are increasing. However, in most of the general-purpose parallel and distributed systems, little attention is given to this potential problem. The aim of this research is to develop a fault-tolerant and adaptive message passing system that assures a successful delivery of the messages even under faulty conditions. This thesis presents an investigation of fault-tolerant routing algorithms for unicast, multicast and broadcast that deliver messages as long as a healthy path exists between the source and destination nodes.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/2646||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
