In this paper, we develop a simple analytical technique to determine P (fQ > qg), the tail of the queue length distribution, at an ATM multiplexer. The ATM multiplexer is modeled as a uid queue serving a large number of independent sources. Our method is based on the central limit theorem and the maximum variance approximation, and enables us to avoid the state explosion problem. The approach is quite general and not limited by a Markovian framework. We apply our analytical method to study the… CONTINUE READING
