The present paper deals with the problem of calculating mean delays in polling systems
with either exhaustive or gated service. We develop a mean value analysis (MVA) to
compute these delay figures. The merits of MVA are in its intrinsic simplicity and its
intuitively appealing derivation. As a consequence, MVA may be applied, both in an
exact and approximate manner, to a large variety of models.
