Mutual Exclusion, Critical Section, Token
This paper presents a new function-based framework for mutual exclusion algorithms in distributed systems. In the traditional classification mutual exclusion algorithms were divided in to two groups: Token-based and Permission-based. Recently, some new algorithms are proposed in order to increase fault tolerance, minimize message complexity and decrease synchronization delay. Although the studies in this field up to now can compare and evaluate the algorithms, this paper takes a step further and proposes a new function-based framework as a brief introduction to the algorithms in the four groups as follows: Token-based, Permission-based, Hybrid and K-mutual exclusion. In addition, because of being dispersal and obscure performance criteria, introduces four parameters which can be used to compare various distributed mutual exclusion algorithms such as message complexity, synchronization delay, decision theory and nodes configuration. Hope the proposed framework provides a suitable context for technical and clear evaluation of existing and future methods.
