Abstract

Quorum systems serve as a basic tool providing a uniform and reliable way to achieve coordination in a distributed system. They are used for distributed and replicated databases, name servers, mutual exclusion, and distributed access control and signatures. Traditionally, two basic methods have used to evaluate quorum systems: the first is the analytical approach. The second approach is simulation. This paper proposes an empirical approach to evaluate systems. The results of the evaluation are presented.
