I understand that vector clocks are preferred over lamport clocks because sometimes lamport clocks cannot account for the casuality and we use extra space to store the timestamps in the vector clocks. What i dont understand is about the resetting of the vector clocks. Why do the vector clocks overflow and how the resetting is done in such scenario?
