Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CREATING TIME-ACCURATE EVENTS STREAMS
Abstract:
Embodiments of the present invention may provide an improved distributed computing system. Entities in the distributed computing system may be divided into four categories: writers, readers, gateways, and applications. End users may interact with the system via the applications through the gateways. The role of writers and readers may be separated to distribute computational burdens. Writers may generate messages for an event stream. The messages may include a timestamp for consistent global ordering. The readers may arrange messages from various writers based on the timestamps to generate globally time-consistent event streams.
