We consider an M/M/1 queue where beneficiary visits occur singly. Once the beneficiary level in the system becomes zero, the server takes a vacation at once. If the server finds no beneficiaries in the system, then the server can take another vacation after the return from the vacation. This process continues until the server has exhaustively taken all the J vacations. The closed form transient solution of the considered model and some important time-dependent performance measures are obtained. Further, the steady state system size distribution is obtained from the time-dependent solution. A stochastic decomposition structure of waiting time distribution and expression for the additional waiting time due to the presence of server vacations are studied. Numerical assessments are presented.
