ABSTRACT
<p><it>Abstract—</it>Consistent global snapshots are important in many distributed applications. We prove the exact conditions for an arbitrary checkpoint, or a set of checkpoints, to belong to a consistent global snapshot, a previously open problem. To describe the conditions, we introduce a generalization of Lamport's happened-before relation called a <it>zigzag path</it>.</p><p><it>Index Terms—</it>Causality, global checkpoints, distributed systems, consistent global states, Lamport's happened-before relation.</p>
