Title: SELF-CONFIGURING FAULT-TOLERANT OPERATIONAL GROUP
Abstract:
In an embodiment, a method includes assigning, based on a switch module of a particular node of one or more nodes of a fault-tolerant group, a channel to the particular node. The method further includes determining a number of nodes in the fault-tolerant group by exchanging handshake information between the channel assigned to the particular node and channels assigned to other nodes of the fault-tolerant group. The method further includes initializing the fault-tolerant group with the determined number of nodes based on the exchanged handshake information.
