This paper discusses some recent developments in the static optimization of queueing systems. Special attention is given to three problem classes: (i) the optimal allocation of servers, or service capacity, to queues in a network; (ii) the optimal allocation of the visits of a single server to several queues (a polling system); (iii) the optimal allocation of a single arrival stream to several single server queues.
