This paper describes the Queueing Network Analyzer (QNA), a software package developed at Bell Laboratories to calculate approximate congestion measures for a network of queues. The first version of QNA analyzes open networks of multiserver nodes with the first-come, first-served discipline and no capacity constraints. An important feature is that the external arrival processes need not be Poisson and the service-time distributions need not be exponential. Treating other kinds of variability is… CONTINUE READING
