A load-balanced network with two queues Q 1 and Q 2 is considered. Each queue receives a Poisson stream of customers at rate i , i=1,2. In addition, a Poisson stream of rate arrives to the system; the customers from this stream join the shorter of two queues. After being served in the ith queue, i=1,2, customers leave the system with probability 1–p i *, join the jth queue with probability p(i,j), j=1,2, and choose the shortest of two queues with probability p(i,{1,2}). We establish necessary and sufficient conditions for stability of the system.
