On the Implementation and Use of Ada on Fault-Tolerant Distributed Systems
May 1987 (vol. 13 no. 5)
pp. 553-563
J.C. Knight, Department of Computer Science, University of Virginia
In this paper, we discuss the use of Ada? on distributed systems in which failure of processors has to be tolerated. We assume that tasks are the primary object of distribution, and that communication between tasks on separate processors will take place using the facilities of the Ada language. It would be possible to build a separate set of facilities for communication between processors, and to treat the software on each machine as a separate program. This is unnecessary and undesirable. In addition, the Ada language Reference Manual states specifically that a system consisting of communicating processors with private memories is suitable for executing an Ada program.
Index Terms:
tolerance of processor failure, Ada, distributed systems, fault tolerance, highly reliable systems
