Automatic Control and Computer Sciences Aims and scope Submit manuscript


We consider variants of intercomplex exchange in systems of duplicated computing complexes with switching redundancy. We analyze the effect of this exchange through duplicated commuters on the reliability, fault-tolerance, and average lifetime of queries in the system. Recommendations are given for choosing a variant of intercomplex exchange.
