Collision-Free Local Area Bus Network Performance Analysis
by V. C. Hamacher, G. S. Shedler
This paper deals with port access control for local area computer communication bus networks. Emphasizing properties of the algorithms and delay-throughput performance, we focus on two collision-free access control schemes recently proposed by Eswaran, Hamacher, and Shedler. We also provide a comparison of these schemes to other available bus access techniques. The performance analysis is based on representation of the bus network as a closed queueing system with nonpreemptive priority service.
