Application Interface Specification (AIS) and Hardware Platform Interface (HPI) are proposed by Service Availability Forum to aim at developing carrier-grade systems. In this paper, a recent implementation of AIS middleware, OpenAIS, is evaluated to see whether it could fit the critical needs in various carrier-grade applications. We conduct the benchmark in two cases: processor leave and processor join with respect to several different parameters crucial to the membership protocol. The result shows good performance for both cases. Finally we point out some possible directions to improve the worst-case recovery time of OpenAIS.
