Title (EN) METASTABLE BYZANTINE AGREEMENT
(FR) ACCORD BYZANTIN MÉTASTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus comprises a first processing node configured to participate in a consensus protocol with a plurality of additional processing nodes. The first processing node is further configured in conjunction with its participation in the consensus protocol to implement repeated polling of respective selected subsets of the additional processing nodes, to resolve a state for a given transaction to a particular one of a plurality of possible states for the given transaction responsive to results of the repeated polling; and to initiate at least one automated action based at least in part on the resolved state for the given transaction. In some embodiments, the first processing node utilizes the results of the repeated polling to maintain a directed acyclic graph or other data structure of transactions that characterizes relationships between the given transaction and a plurality of other transactions.
(FR) Un appareil comprend un premier nœud de traitement configuré pour participer à un protocole de consensus avec une pluralité de nœuds de traitement supplémentaires. Le premier nœud de traitement est en outre configuré, en conjonction avec sa participation dans le protocole de consensus, pour mettre en œuvre une interrogation répétée de sous-ensembles sélectionnés respectifs des nœuds de traitement supplémentaires, pour résoudre un état pour une transaction donnée vers un état particulier d’une pluralité d’états possibles pour la transaction donnée en réponse à des résultats de l’interrogation répétée, et pour déclencher au moins une action automatisée sur la base au moins en partie de l’état résolu pour la transaction donnée. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le premier nœud de traitement utilise les résultats de l’interrogation répétée pour maintenir un graphe acyclique orienté ou une autre structure de données de transactions qui caractérise des relations entre la transaction donnée et une pluralité d’autres transactions.
