Abstract

Disclosed is a method for maintaining consistency between multiple cooperating filesystem state management mechanisms. The method utilizes a framework with well defined boundaries and operations for the arbitration of filesystem access state such as open access guarantees. The framework allows environments where there are multiple independent state managers working together to form a unified state environment.
