Effective Message Purging For Sender-Based Message Logging Considering Lost Message Occurrence
This paper presents two selective stable message log purging algorithms for our previous sender-based message
logging protocol to purge effectively logged messages from volatile memories of their successors' senders. The first only
piggybacks a variable on original control messages for logging each application message to impose minimum overhead on
network link. The second uses a vector sized piggybacking information to speed up eliminating useless log information and
make enough spare space of log buffer remained as much as possible. They incur both no extra message and forced checkpoint.
