    • Bimodal Multicast (revised) 

      Birman, Kenneth P.; Hayden, Mark; Ozkasap, Oznur; Xiao, Zhen; Budiu, Mihai; Minsky, Yaron (Cornell University, 1999-05)
      There are many methods for making a multicast protocol "reliable". At one end of the spectrum, a reliable multicast protocol might offer atomicity guarantees, such as all-or-nothing delivery, delivery ordering, and perhaps ...
    • Efficient Buffering in Reliable Multicast Protocols 

      Ozkasap, Oznur; Van Renesse, Robbert van; Birman, Kenneth P.,; Xiao, Zhen (Cornell University, 1999-07)
      Reliable multicast protocols provide all-or-none delivery to participants. Traditionally, such protocols suffer from large buffering requirements, as receivers have to buffer messages, and buffer sizes grow with the number ...
    • Efficient Error Recovery For Reliable Multicast 

      Xiao, Zhen (Cornell University, 2001-01-03)
      Multicast is an efficient mechanism for distributing data from one sender to multiple receivers. Many applications need a reliable multicast service which is not provided by the existing IP multicast protocol. Providing ...
    • Ensemble Security 

      Rodeh, Ohad; Birman, Kenneth P.; Hayden, Mark; Xiao, Zhen; Dolev, Danny (Cornell University, 1998-09)
      Ensemble is a Group Communication System built at Cornell and the Hebrew Universities. It allows processes to create {\it process groups} in which scalable reliable fifo-ordered multicast and point-to-point communication ...
    • A Multicast Flow Control Protocol 

      Hayden, Mark; Xiao, Zhen (Cornell University, 1999-04)
      This paper describes the goals, approach, implementation, and performance of Mflow, a multicast flow control protocol. Our work focuses on the issues that arise from the increase in acknowledgments that occur as the size ...
    • Optimizing Buffer Management for Reliable Multicast 

      Xiao, Zhen; Birman, Ken (Cornell University, 2000-10-02)
      Reliable multicast delivery requires that a multicast message be received by all members in a group. Hence certain or all members need to buffer messages for possible retransmissions. Designing an efficient buffer ...
    • A Randomized Error Recovery Algorithm for Reliable Multicast 

      Xiao, Zhen; Birman, Ken (Cornell University, 2000-10-02)
      An efficient error recovery algorithm is essential for reliable multicast in large groups. Tree-based protocols (RMTP, TMTP, LBRRM) group receivers into local regions and select a repair server for performing error recovery ...
    • Scalability of Two Reliable Multicast Protocols 

      Ozkasap, Oznur; Xiao, Zhen; Birman, Kenneth P. (Cornell University, 1999-05)
      Growing demand for multicast commun-ication in large network settings has focused attention on the scalability of reliable multicast protocols. Our paper uses both simulation tools and experiments to compare two scalable ...
