In distributed object-based systems, applications manipulate objects distributed on multiple servers. In order to provide reliable and available application services, each object is replicated on multiple servers and replicas of each object have to be mutually consistent. On the other hand, since methods issued to each object are performed on multiple replicas, the total amount of electric energy consumed in a system increases. In our previous studies, the IEEQS (improved energy efficient quorum selection) algorithm is proposed to reduce the total electric energy of servers by omitting only meaningless write methods. In this paper, the IEEQS-EMM (IEEQS with excluding meaningless methods) algorithm is proposed to furthermore reduce the total electric energy of servers by omitting meaningless read and write methods. Evaluation results show the total electric energy of servers can be reduced in the IEEQS-EMM algorithm than the IEEQS algorithm.
