Abstract : We consider in this paper the optimal open-loop control of vacations in queueing systems. The controller has to take actions without state information. We first consider the case of a single queue, in which the question is when should vacations be taken so as to minimize, in some general sense, workloads and waiting times. We then consider the case of several queues, in which service of one queue constitutes a vacation for others. This is the optimal polling problem. We solve both problems using new techniques from \cite{P1,P3} based on multimodularity.
