Bimodal multicast
Kenneth P. Birman, Mark Hayden, Oznur Ozkasap, Zhen Xiao, Mihai Budiu, Yaron Minsky
Pages: 41-88
DOI: 10.1145/312203.312207
There are many methods for making a multicast protocol “reliable.” At one end of the spectrum, a reliable multicast protocol might offer tomicity guarantees, such as all-or-nothing delivery, delivery ordering, and perhaps additional...

Eliminating synchronization overhead in automatically parallelized programs using dynamic feedback
Pedro C. Diniz, Martin C. Rinard
Pages: 89-132
DOI: 10.1145/312203.312210
This article presents dynamic feedback, a technique that enables computations to adapt dynamically to different execution environments. A compiler that uses dynamic feedback produces several different versions of the same source code; each...

RecPlay: a fully integrated practical record/replay system
Michiel Ronsse, Koen De Bosschere
Pages: 133-152
DOI: 10.1145/312203.312214
This article presents a practical solution for the cyclic debugging of nondeterministic parallel programs. The solution consists of a combination of record/replay with automatic on-the-fly data race detection. This combination enables us to...
