Performance Study of an M/M/1 Retrial Queueing System with Balking, Dissatisfied Customers, and Server Vacations
Keywords:retrial queue, balking, server break, dissatisfied customer
This study considers a single server retrial queueing system with dissatisfied customers, server vacations, and balking customers. When new arrivals clients see an idle server available, they immediately enter service. If a new arrival sees the server busy, that arrival may balk and leave the system. Otherwise, the new arrival will enter a retrial orbit and try again later. Customers who are dissatisfied with the service will be served again until the service is completed successfully. The server begins a vacation when the current customer completes service. Birth and death state transitions are given. Steady-state distributions for queue length are found. Furthermore, a recursive technique is used to evaluate probabilities. Several performance measures of the system are identified and effects of changes to parameters are observed.
