Abstract:

This paper examines a generalization of the exhaustive and one-at-a-time-discipline MG1 server vacation models. This alternative model is viewed as a state-dependent non-vacation MG1 queue in which the original service times are extended to include a possibly zero length state-dependent vacation after each service. Such a vacation policy permits greater flexibility in modeling real problems, and does, in fact, subsume most prior MG1 approaches. This device reveals a fundamental decomposition somewhat like that previously established for the classical vacation disciplines. In addition, necessary and sufficient conditions for system ergodicity are established for the state-dependent vacation policy, and some comments are offered on computations together with a few illustrative examples.
