Abstract

We compare the overall mean response time (a.k.a. sojourn time) of the processor sharing (PS) and feedback (FB) queues under an M/GI/1 system. We show that 1713 outperforms PS under service distributions having decreasing failure rates; whereas PS outperforms FB under service distributions having increasing failure rates.
