Buffer Behavior in Computer Communication Systems
August 1979 (vol. 28 no. 8)
pp. 573-576
T.S. Heines, Department of Computer and Information Science, Cleveland State University
A buffer has been analyzed in a computer communication system with Poisson arrivals, periodic opportunities for service, and random blocking of service. The solution obtained reflects the waiting a customer must do until a service opportunity arises. Compared to previous solutions for this problem, the average queue length and the variance of queue length are larger by a factor which depends on the arrival rate.
Index Terms:
queuing theory, Buffer blocking, buffering, communications, data transmission, periodic service
