We analyze busy period related characteristics for oscillating systems, proposing a method to compute the mean length of busy periods for nonpreemptive oscillating systems. We further evaluate customer loss rates in busy cycles and the long-run blocking probability for such systems using the proposed method and earlier results from the authors for the mean number of customer losses in busy periods.
