Fault tolerant computing with transputers and occam

Authors: Nieuwenhuis, L. J. M., Blom, G. D.


In this paper the results of a case study with Transputers and Occam for a systematic approach of fault tolerant computing is presented. An arbitrary Transputer system can be transformed into a fault tolerant version without using additional special hardware. Fault tolerance is based on software implemented replication. The fault tolerant version consists of copies of the original system. Processes on the original Transputers can automaticly be transformed into versions which can be executed by the Transputers of the fault tolerant system. The reliability of the resulting system is optimal and performance optimizing properties of the original system are preserved.
