We study the multi-server machine interference problem with repair pressure coefficient and a modified Bernoulli vacation. The repair rate depends on the number of failed machines waiting in the system. In congestion, the server may increase the repair rate with pressure coefficient $\theta$ to reduce the queue length. At each repair completion of a server, the server may go for a vacation of random length with probability $p$ or may continue to repair the next failed machine, if any, with probability $1-p$. The entire system is modeled as a finite-state Markov chain and its steady state distribution is obtained by a recursive matrix approach. The major performance measures are evaluated based on this distribution. Under a cost structure, we propose to use the Quasi-Newton method and probabilistic global search Lausanne method to search for the global optimal system parameters. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the application of our approach.
