In this paper, we will clarify the problem of consecutively lost customer due to buffer overflow in an IPP, M/M/l/K queueing system including an M1, M2/M/l/K queueuing system as a special case. We define a length of a consecutive loss as the number of customers consecutively lost due to buffer overflow. And, we obtain individual distributions of the lengths of consecutive losses for the IPP- and Markov-sources. From analytical and numerical results, it is shown that either they are geometrical or they can be approximated by a geometric distribution. Also, from numerical examples, we show some properties of the length of consecutive customer loss.
