public class MERGEFAST
extends Protocol

The coordinator attaches a small header with its view to each (or every nth) message. If another coordinator in the same group sees the message, it will initiate the merge protocol immediately by sending a MERGE event up the stack.

Method Detail


public java.lang.Object down(Event evt)
Description copied from class: Protocol
An event is to be sent down the stack. The layer may want to examine its type and perform some action on it, depending on the event's type. If the event is a message MSG, then the layer may need to add a header to it (or do nothing at all) before sending it down the stack using down_prot.down(). In case of a GET_ADDRESS event (which tries to retrieve the stack's address from one of the bottom layers), the layer may need to send a new response event back up the stack using up_prot.up().

public java.lang.Object up(Event evt)
Description copied from class: Protocol
An event was received from the layer below. Usually the current layer will want to examine the event type and - depending on its type - perform some computation (e.g. removing headers from a MSG event type, or updating the internal membership list when receiving a VIEW_CHANGE event). Finally the event is either a) discarded, or b) an event is sent down the stack using down_prot.down() or c) the event (or another event) is sent up the stack using up_prot.up().
