Multiserver Systems Subject to Breakdowns: An Empirical Study
January 1983 (vol. 32 no. 1)
pp. 96-98
I. Mitrani, Computing Laboratory, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne
The tradeoffs between efficiency and reliability in M / M / N queueing systems subject to breakdowns are studied numerically. The dependence of the optimal number of servers on the system parameters is investigated under two different sets of assumptions about the pattern of breakdowns and repairs.
Index Terms:
steady state, Breakdowns, multiprocessor systems, queueing systems, response time
