We consider a polling system consisting of K queues and a single server S who visits the queues in a cyclic order. The polling discipline in each queue is the gated or exhaustive service discipline. We investigate the tail behaviour of the waiting time distributions at the various queues in the case that at least one of the service time or switchover time distributions has a regularly varying tail.
