Retries with backoff in distributed systems


In a distributed system, where multiple processes communicate with each other over a network, failures are inevitable. Network partitions, hardware failures, and software bugs can all cause a request to fail. Retries with backoff are a critical technique to help mitigate these failures. Retries refer to the act of retrying a failed request. When a request fails, the client can retry the request, hoping that it will succeed the next time around.
