I want a generic algorithm. You are right that swapping logs is excellent for your example, but what if one node does not have half of what the other node has, then logs might be a bad idea. I want to periodically run this algorithm to synchronize the nodes. Something similar to what I described in the other posting (the algorithm I gave), but maybe something more efficient.
