In this note, we consider a queue fed by a number of independent heterogeneous Gaussian sources. We study under what conditions a reduced load equivalence holds, i.e., when a subset of the sources becomes asymptotically dominant as the buffer size increases. For this, recent results on extremes of Gaussian processes [6] are combined with de Haan theory. We explain how the results of this note relate to square root insensitivity and moderately heavy tails.
