Part Six - Distributed Systems > CHAPTER 18 - Distributed Coordination

CHAPTER 18
Distributed Coordination
 
 
In Chapter 6, we described various mechanisms that allow processes to synchronize their actions. We also discussed a number of schemes to ensure the atomicity of a transaction that executes either in isolation or concurrently with other transactions. In Chapter 7, we described various methods that an operating system can use to deal with the deadlock problem. In this chapter, we examine how centralized synchronization mechanisms can be extended to a distributed environment. We also discuss methods for handling deadlocks in a distributed system.
