In this paper, the authors consider the one-bit feedback scheduler with a threshold in a wireless network. Due to its feedback reduction structure, the one-bit feedback scheduler has been studied as one of good candidates implementable in a practical wireless network, and it is important to determine the threshold value of the one-bit feedback scheduler. To solve this problem, network throughput and/or long term fairness are mainly considered in previous studies. However, when they consider the packet level performance such as packet overflow probability, both short term fairness and long term fairness should be considered because both significantly affect the packet level performance.
