Testing Reliable Distributed Applications Through Simulated Events

Winfrey, Travis L.; Kaiser, Gail E.

There are many distributed applications that incorporate application-specific reliability algorithms which operate on top of general purpose networking, operating system and programming language facilities. We present a framework for application-level reliability testing suitable for a wide range of distributed applications, and describe how we've applied it to one particular application, Mercury, a distributed, multi-user programming environment.
