A list of programs or tasks waiting for execution. In Windows printing terminology, a queue refers to a group of documents waiting to be printed. In NetWare and OS/2 environments, queues are the primary software interface between the application and print device; users submit documents to a queue. With Windows, however, the printer is that interface; the document is sent to a printer, not a queue.
For Message Queuing, the storage size limit for messages in public queues. When a queue quota is reached, Message Queuing can no longer send messages to that queue until one or more messages are removed from the queue. Message Queuing enforces the computer quota before it enforces the queue quota on a computer.
For Message Queuing, a globally unique identifier (GUID) specified by the application that created the queue.

The log where the quorum resource stores data. This data is maintained by the clustering software. Also known as the recovery log or change log.
The quorum-capable resource selected to maintain the configuration data necessary for recovery of the cluster. This data contains details of all of the changes that have been applied to the cluster database. The quorum resource is generally accessible to other cluster resources so that any cluster node has access to the most recent database changes. By default there is only one quorum resource per cluster.
In a majority node set server cluster, the replication traffic between nodes in a cluster. This replication traffic contains the cluster configuration data and ensures that the cluster quorum information is kept in sync across all nodes.
The amount of disk space available to a user.
