Title: How Fast is Robust Gossip?
Gossip, also known as epidemic dissemination, is a popular technique for spreading information in distributed systems. This talk describes some of the trade-offs between the message complexity of gossip protocols, and their ability to tolerate node failures.
We start by presenting a new gossip protocol, TrickleGossip, which is the first to achieve sub-quadratic message complexity while tolerating adaptive failures. Second, we show a direct relation between resilience and message complexity, demonstrating that gossip protocols which tolerate a large number of adaptive failures need to use a super-linear number of messages with high probability. Finally, we will talk about some of the applications of our results to other distributed problems, and discuss some open questions.
