Abstract
This paper describes Transis, a communication sub­
system for high availability. Transis is a transport
layer that supports reliable multicast services. The
main novelty is in the efficient implementation using
broadcast. The basis of Transis is automatic mainte­

of messages, and overcomes partitions and re­merging.
The higher layer provides various multicast services
for sets of processes.
1 Introduction
This paper provides an overview of Transis, a com­
munication sub­system for high availability. Transis is
developed as part of the High Availability project at
the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Transis is a transport layer package that supports
