Description

Consider a distributed system with n processors, in which each processor receives some triggers from an external source. The distributed trigger counting (DTC) problem is to raise an alert and report to a user when the number of triggers received by the system reaches w, where w is a user-speci?ed input. The problem has applications in monitoring, global snapshots, synchronizers and other distributed settings. In this paper, we present two decentralized and randomized algorithms for the DTC problem. The ?rst algorithm has message complexity O(n log w) and no processor receives more than O(log w) messages with high probability. It does not provide any bound on the messages sent per processor. This algorithm assumes complete connectivity between the processors. The second algorithm has message complexity O(n log n log w) and no processor exchanges more than O(log n log w) messages with high probability. However, there is a negligible failure probability in raising the alert on receiving w triggers. This algorithm only requires that a constant degree tree be embeddable in the underlying communication graph.
