Distributed Database Systems: Failure Recovery Procedure

Authors:Son, Sang, Department of Computer ScienceUniversity of Virginia Tripathi, Satish, Department of Computer ScienceUniversity of Virginia

Distributed database systems operate in computer networking environments where component failures are inevitable during normal operation. Failures not only threaten normal operation of the system, but they may also destroy the consistency of the system by direct damage to the storage subsystem. To cope with these failures, distributed database systems must provide recovery mechanisms which maintain the system consistency. In this paper, techniques used for recovery management of distributed database systems are surveyed. We first describe the basic notions including transaction, consistency, and commit protocols. Then, we discuss the types of failures that may occur in distributed database systems and the appropriate recovery actions.
