Performance Modeling of a Quorum Pattern in Layered Service Systems

Abstract

Quorum consensus protocols execute requests in parallel and proceed once K out of N responses are received. The performance of a system depends on the value of K, the distributions of the quorum response delays, and on the use of system resources by the N concurrent requests. An analytic approximation is given for the delay to achieve the quorum, which also… (More)
