Implementation of reliable and efficient remote procedure calls


In a distributed system, Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs) enable clients to invoke services offered by remote servers and obtain appropriate results. The working of the RPC is transparent to the user. Since the server and the client are on different machines and the messages are passed on the underlying communication network, any successful RPC mechanism should be made robust enough so that it can handle failures in any of these entities. Thus reliability is a crucial factor in the performance of an RPC mechanism. This paper concentrates on the increase in the fault tolerance and thus the reliability of the RPC mechanism. A new mechanism of RPC execution is introduced and test results are provided. No pagination in original publication.
