A Batch Markovian Queue with a Variable Number of Servers and Group Services
Matrix-Analytic Methods Theory and Applications Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference
In this paper, we consider a multi-server queuing model with a finite buffer in which customers arrive according to a batch Markovian arrival process (BMAP). These customers are served in groups of varying sizes ranging from a predetermined value L through a maximum size, K. The service times are exponentially distributed. The number of servers in the system at any given time varies between a lower limit and an upper limit. The steady state analysis of the model is performed by exploiting the structure of the coefficient matrices. Some interesting numerical examples are discussed.
