Abstract A loop system with $\textit{N}$ buffered terminals sharing a common time-multiplexed channel is studied. The service discipline is prescribed by a permutation φ = (φ(1), ···, $φ(\textit{N}))$ which gives the relative ranking of the terminals. Data from the $\textit{i}th$ terminal may be buffered at an intermediate terminal—its transmission to the CPU interrupted—if there is a conflict with data from a terminal with higher ranking. It is shown how such systems may be analyzed and how the system performance, as measured by average response time, may be improved by imposing a suitable priority discipline.
