Connection management without retaining information Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • © 1995 IEEE. Managing a connection between two hosts in a network is an important service to provide in order to make the network useful for many applications. The two main sub-problems are the management of serial incarnations of a connection and the transfer of messages within an incarnation. This paper investigates whether it is necessary for connection management protocols to retain state information across node crashes and between incarnations.
