Abstract : The note comments on some recent work by B. Avi-Itzhak and D. P. Heyman (1), which deals with the use of approximate queuing models for analyzing the behavior of multiprogramming computer systems. The intention of this work is to point out the implications of such an approach, to present an alternative model, and to discuss the procedures used to verify their approximation model. (Author)
