A ﬂuid queueing system in which the ﬂuid ﬂow in to the buffer is regulated by the state of the background queueing process is considered. In this model, the arrival and service rates follow chain sequence rates and are controlled by an exponential timer. The buffer content distribution along with averages are found using continued fraction methodology. Numerical results are illustrated to analyze the trend of the average buffer content for the model under consideration. It is interesting to note that the stationary solution of a ﬂuid queue driven by a queue with chain sequence rates does not exist in the absence of exponential timer.
