A model of remote procedure call (RPC) which reflects certain generic properties of the application layer that can be exploited by the RPC layer during failure recovery is presented. A technique of adopting orphans caused by failures, which is based on the model, is described. The technique minimizes the rollback which may be required in orphan-killing techniques. Algorithmic details of the ado
