Modelling Pascal traffic in overflow systems

Mariusz Głąbowski, Damian Kmiecik


In this paper, impact of changes in parameters of offeredtraffic on the accuracy of determining the parameters of overflowtraffic in hierarchy systemswithmulti-service traffic was presented. Pascal typetrafficstreamswereoffered to the consideredsystems. The study investigated the impact of changes in the number of sources, intensity of trafficoffered by individualclasses, as well as changes in the trafficoffered by single free source. The presentedresultsarebased on determined relative errors of the values of overflowtrafficobtained in simulations and on the basis of calculations.
