On Fluid Queueing Systems with Strict Priority

Yong Liu, Weibo Gong

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider priority fluid queueing systems where high-priority class has strict priority access to service. Sample path analysis tools, such as Poisson counter driven stochastic differential equation, are employed to study system queueing behavior in steady state. We are able to obtain various analytical results for different fluid traffic models and system configurations. Those results can be used as a general rule of thumb in buffer dimensioning and other traffic engineering issues.
