Abstract

The extension of the transaction concept to the distributed environment has introduced problems not present in centralized systems. Some of these new problems are due to the communication network, which has become the major speed limitation factor. This suggests that minimizing communication in distributed transactions is as crucial as minimizing disk access for centralized systems. A system for distributed transaction processing that reflects this concern is presented. A novel construct called 'execute' is used that allows the initiation and execution of a group of remote operations with one command.
