    We consider the traffic allocation problem: arriving customers have to be assigned to one of a group of servers. The aim is to optimize system performance measures, such as mean waiting time of a customer or total number of customers in the system, under a given static allocation policy. Two static policies are considered: probabilistic assignment and allocation according to a fixed pattern. For these two policies, general properties as well as optimization aspects are discussed.
