A special class of mobile application has been made feasible by Mobile ad-hoc networks. They benefit from the fast deployment and reconfiguration of the networks, are mainly characterized by the need to support many-to-many interaction schema within groups of cooperating mobile hosts and are likely to use replication of data objects to achieve performances and high data availability. This strong group orientation requires specialized solutions that combine adaptation to the fully mobile environment and provide the adequate level of data and service availability with certain amount of fault tolerance. In this paper performance analysis of existing Location-based MANETs techniques with respect to various issues they address such as Data availability and data consistency, Partition detection, etc., is carried out.
