A Unifying Framework for the Approximate Solution of Closed Multiclass Queuing Networks

  title={A Unifying Framework for the Approximate Solution of Closed Multiclass Queuing Networks},

  journal={IEEE Trans. Computers},
Queuing network models of modern computing systems must consider a large number of components (e.g., Web servers, DB servers, application servers, firewall, routers, networks) and hundreds of customers with very different resource requirements. The complexity of such models makes the application of exact solution techniques prohibitively expensive, motivating research on approximate methods. This paper proposes an interpolation-matching framework that allows a unified view of approximate… CONTINUE READING
