MAP Queueing Networks are a new class of closed queueing network
models for the analysis of computer and communication systems
where service times are affected by burstiness. Queueing network models
can be used to
forecast the utilization and response time of a system composed by
several inter-operating components (servers, hardware devices) modeled
as queues. In particular, real systems are often characterized by
limited buffer sizes and this makes the class of closed queueing
network a better abstraction of real systems than open models.
