Replica allocation over mobile ad-hoc network is a crucial problem. In MANTEs, network partition occurs between mobile nodes due to mobility and resource constraints. Performance degradation of MANETs can be reduced by proper replica allocation. Mobile nodes share their memory space for allocating data replication. Under such cases, some mobile nodes may selfishly decide only to cooperate partially, or not at all, with other nodes. Selfish nodes reduce the data accessibility and availability. This paper carried out to identify the partial and full selfish nodes.
