Measurement Bias in Feedback Queues Academic Article uri icon


  • A classical method of measunng the number of lobs m a trine-shared computer system is to collect statistics at the epochs of quantum completions. A computer system utilizing round-robin quantum allocations is modeled as a feedback queue with Poisson amvals and exponential service times, and the bias in the stausuc taken at the quantum completions is qualified. The difference botween this statistic and the true time-average system size is given for such a system including quanta and overhead. 1981, ACM. All rights reserved.
