We consider to apply the perturbation analysis (PA) to a single-server queue with multiple server vacations. A major difficulty in the implementation of PA estimator for such queueing systems is that the introduced perturbations are propagated and accumulated continuously without any resetting. This fact may lead to the divergence of PA estimates even if the limiting distribution exists. We show that it is possible to construct a sequence of points on the observed sample path such that thedoi:10.1145/324138.324274 fatcat:zateuwdzu5fxbeuboq6pmccpyy
