John Davis Palmer, Hovey Raymond Strong, Eliezer Upfal: Method and apparatus for accessing shared resources with asymmetric safety in a multiprocessing system. Frederick W Gibb Iii, Mcginn & Gibb Pllc, February 7, 2002: US20020016845-A1

In a multiprocessing system, access to a shared resource is arbitrated among multiple computing nodes. The shared resources has a membership view resulting from a predetermined membership protocol performed by the shared resource and the computing nodes. Preferably, this membership protocol includes ...
