Dynamic priority rules when polling with multiple parallel servers

Sid Browne, Gideon Weiss

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we extend previous results (by Browne and Yechiali) on dynamic priority rules in polling systems to a new version of a polling system where a number of servers c are coupled together as they service the stations. Index rules are derived to optimize system performance.
