Weighted priority queueing is a modification of priority queueing that eliminates the possibility of blocking lower priority traffic. The weights assigned to priority classes determine the fractions of the bandwith that are guaranteed for individual traffic classes, similarly as in weighted fair queueing. The paper describes a timed Petri net model of weighted priority queueing and uses discrete--event simulation of this model to obtain performance characteristics of simple queueing systems. The model is also used to analyze the effects of finite queue capacity on the performance of queueing systems.
