1. Select a control/master server. Probably the one with the least IP addr. Standard protocol, not a big deal.[something similar to the spaning tree protocol would do]
2. Control/master server selects a pivot from its own array and broadcasts the value to the est
3. Each slave server partitions its own array based on this pivot value and sends the left , central and right count to the master server.
4. Based on the total number of elements in each slave server and those that the master itself has, master selects one of the left, or right partitions to work on . Each of the slave servers will now be working on this partition.
5. if total_left_count>=n/2: work on left partitions;repeat 2 to 4
else If total_left_count+total_central_count<=n/2: pivot is the median;
Else work on right partition; repeat 2 to 4
