when you've got a bunch of spread daemons together in a partition, how do they communicate with each other?  udp, broadcast, or multicast?  how is the determination made?

given the particular uses i have in mind, on a network of linux computers, our particular situation would be best suited to multicast.  is there a way we can force the daemons to communicate in that way?
