A cyclic queueing network with dependent exponential service times
Jacobs, Patricia A.
MetadataShow full item record
A cyclic queueing network with two servers and a finite number of customers is studied. The service times for server 1 form an EARMA(1,1) process (exponential mixed autoregressive moving average process both of order 1) which is a sequence of positively correlated exponential random variables; the process in general is not Markovian. The service times for the other server are independent with a common exponential distribution. Limiting results for the number of customers in queue and the virtual waiting time at server 1 are obtained. Comparisons are made with the case of independent exponential service times for server 1.

Naval Postgraduate School, 1990-08); NPS-55-90-18A model of queueing for a single server by several types of customers (messages, or jobs), with a simple dynamic priority rule, is considered. The rule is equivalent to selecting the next server occupant type with a ...
