We consider the discrete-time Markovian single-server queue under delayed multiple vacations. Upon arriving, the customers observe the queue length and decide whether to join or balk. We derive equilibrium threshold balking strategies in two cases, according to the information for the server’s state. We also illustrate the equilibrium thresholds and the social benefits for systems via numerical experiments.
