Below, we provide illustrative examples of interesting multiserver systems whose behavior is captured by GFB processes. In all the examples, we assume that arrival processes of jobs are Poisson processes, and service demand distributions are exponential distributions. However, these can be generalized to MAPs and PH distributions, respectively (and these systems can still be modeled as GFB processes).

- Threshold-based policy for reducing switching costs in cycle stealing
- Size-based task assignment with cycle stealing under central queue
- Nonpreemptive priority queue
- Threshold-based policies in Beneficiary-Donor model
