Several of the principal results in bottleneck analysis for closed queueing networks are surveyed. Both product-form closed queueing networks, where exact bottleneck analysis is possible, and non-product-form closed queueing networks, where approximations are given for asymptotic bottleneck behavior, are considered. Algorithms for the asymptotic bottleneck analysis are presented and the switching surfaces of bottlenecks are described.
