Abstract or Table of Contents

Previously established necessary and sufficient conditions for finite stationary moments in stable FIFO GI/GI/s queues exist only for the first component of the workload vector, the delay. In this paper, we derive moment results for all the components of the stationary workload vector in stable FIFO GI/GI/s queues. As in the case of stationary delay, the moment conditions for workload components incorporate the interaction between service time distribution, traffic intensity and the number of servers in the queue.
