What algorithm best mimics neurons firing across a neural (Telco mesh fabric) network? The Firefly inspired heartbeat algorithm: http://sawconcepts.com/index/id22.html
Firefly inspired Heartbeat Synchronization: in a paper entitled Fireﬂy-inspired Heartbeat Synchronization in Overlay Networks by the University of Bologna, Trento Italy along with the University of Szeged, Hungary: “Heartbeat synchronization strives to have nodes in a distributed system generate periodic, local “heartbeat” events approximately at the same time.
Many useful distributed protocols rely on the existence of such heartbeats for driving their cycle- based execution.. The heartbeat synchronization protocol for overlay networks is inspired by mathematical models of ﬂash synchronization in certain species of ﬁreﬂies. Nodes send ﬂash messages to their neighbors when a local heartbeat triggers. Fireflies adjust the phase of their next heartbeat based on incoming ﬂash messages using an algorithm inspired by mathematical models of ﬁre-ﬂy synchronization.
Heartbeat synchronization strives to have nodes in a distributed system generate periodic, local “heartbeat” events approximately at the same time. It differs from classical clock synchronization in that nodes are not interested in counting cycles and agreeing on a ID of a current cycle. There is no requirement regarding the length of a cycle with respect to real time as long as a length is bounded and all nodes agree on it eventually. The goal is to guarantee that all nodes start and end their cycles at the same time, with an error that is at least one, but preferably more, orders of magnitude smaller than a chosen cycle length.
Firefly inspired stochastic harmonization combined with cycle Heart Beacon Cycle: Fireflies adjust the phase of their next heartbeat based on incoming ﬂash messages using an algorithm inspired by mathematical models of ﬁreﬂy synchronization. There is no requirement regarding the length of a cycle with respect to real time as long as a length is bounded and all nodes agree on it eventually. What we are interested in guaranteeing is that all nodes start and end their cycles at the same time, with an error that is at least one, but preferably more, orders of magnitude smaller than a chosen cycle length.
Firefly heartbeat synchronization reduces uncertainty in stochastic networks” — especially when firefly’s near consensus (statistical mean) that is matched to nearest Heartbeat Beacon micro-cycle schedule news-casted over wide areas. Stochastic Harmonization of FOREX Networks. is a practical application of the concept described in image 8 where algorithms inspired by a species of fireflies who strive to achieve blinking pattern consensus during mating activities are used in concert with established heartbeat state meta data snapshot harvesting intervals.
Firefly events matched with cyclical heartbeat cycles would require a read / write, store and forward service. Ceilometer as a Time-Series-as-a-Service Ceilometer API is a time series read/write service, useful in auditing leveraging a time-sample API as part of an event subsystem. = new project called Gnocchi, Gnocchi is split in two parts: a time series API and its driver, and a resource indexing API with its own driver. Having two distinct driver sets allows it to use different technologies to store each data type in the best storage engine possible. The canonical driver for time series handling is based on Pandas and Swift. The canonical resource indexer driver is based on SQLAlchemy.

Firefly heartbeat synchronization reduces uncertainty in stochastic networks”. In context with the Internet of Everything Value index, cross network and system stochastic harmonization will help improve the process of searching for unused resources and unmet needs of goods at rest and in transit in context with geo-spatial temporal snapshots in time enabling the redirection, re-vectoring of assets in near real time to point of consumption, point of need resulting in a more efficient (re) distribution scheme, savings in fuel and support for real time news-casting / beacon broadcasting, news-casting, replicating advertisements to subscribers.
