qdisk is definitely a heartbeat vector. Nodes regularly, at configured
interval value, write to a status block which modifies the timestamp. 
cf man qdisk, chapter 2.1 Heartbeating and liveliness determination

Currently supported, only the clusternode (cluster.conf) corresponding
IP addresses are used for heartbeating.
Multiple heartbeat interfaces, referred as multiring is technicaly
possiblebut not "yet" supported.

If using qdisk in a 2 nodes cluster, two_nodes setting (cluster.conf)
must be =0.
Quorum depends on the number of votes you gave to each node and to the
quorum.
Cluster is quorate if number of active votes > 50% of the expected votes
(greater than)
mkqdisk is not sufficient, the qdisk device must also be defined in the
cluster.conf.

How could you relocate the server manually if the cluster was not
quorate ?
