Summary:
This thesis analyzes how software fault tolerance can be implemented in a hypercube multiprocessor. For concreteness we consider a multiprocessor using Intel 80286/386/486 processors. The Recovery Metaprogram approach (an architecture that isolates all fault tolerance functions in a special layer) has been used to implement application transparent and application specific fault tolerance technigues such as recovery blocks, N-version programming, exceptions and others. A fault tolerant routing algorithm is also described. While the details are specific to the 80286/386/486 processor these results apply also to any other processor with similar features.
