vector-clock: Vector clocks for versioning message flows

[ data, data-structures, distributed-computing, gpl, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides a ready to use implementation of the vector clock data-structures, which may be used to version messages and determine causality relations between them in a distributed system.

See Fundamentals of Distributed Computing: A Practical Tour of Vector Clock Systems by R. Baldoni and M. Raynal for an overview of vector clocks.
