The polling model resembles with a system of multiple queues targeted by the single server in cyclic order. Polling model has effective impact over performance investigation of network related applications. To date, the polling models have been extensively studied and analyzed only with Poisson traffic distributions. This study brings novelty in the area of polling models and analyze different kinds of polling systems (exhaustive, gated and combination of these) with realistic traffic distributions i.e. self-similar and long range dependent. We present an analytical framework by considering four different types of traffic classes that exhibit long range dependence and self-similar characteristics. The four queues model is based on G/M/1 queuing system, which has been analyzed under a variety of polling mechanisms like exhaustive service, gated service and combination of them. We perform simulation experiments in C++ to validate our proposed analytical framework for evaluating the QoS parameters.
