Then stop looking and go buy Livelock from Tuque Games.
The absence of deadlock and livelock conditions is a key concern when designing distributed real-time systems.
Deterministic and partially adaptive algorithms are deadlock and livelock free while fully adaptive algorithms requires some precaution by having deadlock, livelock and congestion avoiding techniques [119].
We do not currently have adequate methods for modeling robot structure and functionality, of predicting the consequences of robot commands and actions, and of imposing requirements on those actions, such as reaching the goal but doing it in a safe way and making sure that the robot is always live, with no deadlock or livelock.
Structure verification--Structure verification aims at verifying the structure consistency of a workflow, including deadlock, livelock, lack of synchronization, misuse of modelling objects and constructors, active end, dead activity.
In order to ensure the correctness of a typical distributed system, in addition to deadlock freedom, the properties, like safety, liveness, and livelock freedom also, must be verified.
This helps with more efficient resource allocation and helps solve the problems of what's called livelock, caused by multiple concurrent Internet applications competing for Internet resources.
This aids with more efficient resource allocation and puts an end to the livelock and deadlock scenarios, which plague users when simultaneous applications contend for Internet resources.
Mogul and Ramakrishan [1997] propose a system that uses interrupts under normal network load and polling under overload, in order to avoid receiver livelock.
This can lead to livelock with the sender's transmissions being persistently dropped at the receiver.
While designing nonminimal routing algorithms, care should be taken to avoid livelock situations where a message continues to be routed through the network but never reaches its destination.
Careful readers will notice that, if the Linda kernel is "unfair"--if it can repeatedly bypass one process blocked on in in favor of others--the Linda solution allows indefinite overtaking or livelock.
