In the early 1970s, when computing capabilities were tiny, tiny, tiny 
compared to even a cell phone today, and those resources were typically 
time-shared across multiple users, queueing network models became a 
primary tool to analyze and improve system performance. Queueing models 
had been studied for years before regarding communication systems and 
other systems, but networks of queues seemed especially apropos for 
understanding time-sharing systems.

Computer Systems Performance Modeling, which Professor K.M. Chandy and I 
wrote in 1978-9, previously published by Pearson Education, Inc. is now 
out of print. We are making PDF copies of lightly edited versions 
available under a Creative Commons license.

Ed MacNair and I published two books based on The Research Queueing 
Package, RESQ: Simulation of Computer Communication Systems and Elements 
of Practical Performance Modeling. Those books, previously published by 
Pearson Education, Inc. are now out of print. We are making PDF copies 
of lightly edited versions available under a Creative Commons license. 
Though we have written two prior articles about RESQ history, those did 
not cover subsequent development, so another recap seems appropriate 
now. https://notes.technologists.com/notes/2020/08/25/remembering-resq/

(Mainstream Videoconferencing: A Developer’s Guide to Distance 
Multimedia, which Joe Duran and I wrote from 1994-96, became available 
again in 2008:
