Cluster synchronization
« on: November 16, 2016, 04:08:27 PM »
What is the background?



How could this challenge be executed?

Cosmoneers must locate and synchronize their clocks, vote/promote a single Cosmoneer to be leader and accept commands from the Leader that instruct the slave Cosmoneers to perform a task at the same time.


What might affect this challenge?

Cosmoneers need a unique name to prevent name conflicts.  Cosmoneers also need identical clocks, or a reliable clock source between them.  Cosmoneers will also need a way to initiate a vote, elect and promote a Cosmoneer to the leader role.
