Abstract

An algorithm is described for computing queue statistics numerically for purposes of performance evaluation and system design. The algorithm covers the simple closed chain shown in the figure. Here, there is employed the known result which relates mean queue size n, mean waiting time w, and throughput lambda, as follows: n=lambda w.
