                through gateways connecting networks of varying

                implementation that avoids work in the server by
                handling duplicate requests. More important,
                though listed as a side-effect, the reply cache
                aids in the avoidance of destructive
                non-idempotent operation re-application --
                improving correctness.

                Reno NFS implementation. Describes performance
                improvement (reduced CPU loading) through
                elimination of data copies.

                May 1992.  Second paper on Spritely NFS proposes
                a lease-based scheme for recovering state of
                consistency protocol.
