This paper presents a transport-level multicast protocol that is useful for building fault-tolerant group-based applications. It provides (i) reliable, end-to-end message delivery, and (ii) a failure suspector service wherein best efforts are made to avoid mistakes. This service can facilitate an efficient, higher level implementation of group membership service which does not capriciously exclude a functioning and connected member from the membership set. The protocol has mechanisms for flow and implosion- control, and for recovering from packet losses. Through simulations, its performance is studied for both homogeneous and heterogeneous network configurations. The results are very encouraging.
