Closed reentrant lines in heavy traffic: fluid limits and efficiency Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • In this paper, we show that fluid limits can be used to study the asymptotic throughput of a stochastic closed reentrant line in the infinite population limit. As applications of this technique, the Last Buffer First Serve (LBFS) scheduling policy, and the Harrison-Wein Balanced policy for two station networks, are shown to be efficient, i.e., that they attain bottleneck throughput in the infinite population limit.
