Abstract
Renaming is a fundamental problem in distributed computing, in which a set of n processes need to pick unique names from a namespace of limited size. In this paper, we present the first early-deciding upper bounds for synchronous renaming, in which the running time adapts to the actual number of failures f in the execution. We show that, surprisingly, renaming can be solved in constant time if the number of failures f is limited to O(√n), while for general f ≤ n - 1 renaming can always be solved in O(log f) communication rounds. In the wait-free case, i.e. for f = n - 1, our upper bounds match the Ω(log n) lower bound of Chaudhuri et al. [13].
