Reliability of a distributed processing system is an important design parameter that can be described in terms of the reliability of processing elements and communication links and also of the redundancy of programs and data files. The traditional terminal-pair reliability does not capture the redundancy of programs and files in a distributed system. Two reliability measures are introduced: dis
distributed systems; design parameter; communication links; redundancy; data files; distributed program reliability; graph traversal; distributed processing; fault tolerant computing.
