Title (EN) METHOD FOR SYNCHRONIZING PROCESSES IN A DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM
(FR) PROCEDE DE SYNCHRONISATION DE PROCESSUS DANS UN SYSTEME REPARTI
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for controlling access to a shared object among a plurality of interconnected processes. An associated lock token is generated for each shared object and a process must possess the lock token in order to access or to modify the associated object. When two or more processes are contending for the token at the same time, each process will wait for a random time period before again seeking control of the token.
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à un système et à un procédé conçus pour réguler l'accès à un objet partagé par une pluralité de processus interconnectés. Un jeton de verrouillage est associé à chaque objet et un processus doit posséder le jeton de verrouillage pour accéder à l'objet associé et le modifier. Lorsque deux processus ou plus sont en concurrence pour un jeton à un même instant, chacun des processus attend pendant un laps de temps aléatoire avant de chercher à nouveau à s'approprier le jeton.
