Admission control in queueing networks is often based on partial information on the network state. This paper studies how the lack of state information affects performance by considering a simple model for admission control. The model is analyzed by studying a related censored process that has a matrix-geometric steady-state distribution. Numerical results show how partial information may cause some performance characteristics in queueing networks to be nonmonotone with respect to service rates.
Key words: queueing network, admission control, feedback signaling, censoring
