Crash failure detection is a key topic in fault tolerance, and it is important to be able to assess the QoS of failure detection services. Most previous work on crash failure detectors has been based on the crash-stop or fail-free assumption. In this paper we study and model a crash-recovery service which has the ability to recover from the crash state. We analyse the QoS bounds for such a crash-recovery failure detection service. Our results show that the dependability metrics of the monitored service will have an impact on the QoS of the failure detection service. Our results are corroborated by simulation results, showing bounds on the QoS
