Let \((\theta_ t)\) be a measure preserving, ergodic flow on the probability space (\(\Omega\),\({\mathcal F},P)\) and let N be a random measure on \({\mathbb{R}}\) that is stationary with respect to \((\theta_ t)\). The author shows that if the intensity i (satisfying \(E[N(A)]=i\) \(\times\) (Lebesgue measure of A)) is less than one, then the random variable \(W=\sup \{N((-t,0])-t:t\geq 0\}\) is finite almost surely. (One can interpret W as the ”charge” at time zero, i.e., service demanded but not yet effected, of a unit rate server facing the demand N.) The process \(W_ t=W(\theta_ t)\) is shown to be the unique solution to the stochastic differential equation \(dW_ t+1(W_ t>0)dt+1(W_ t=0)\sigma (\theta_ t)dt=dN_ t.\) where \(\sigma_ t=\sigma (\theta_ t)\) is the absolutely continuous component of N, for which \(\sigma\leq 1\) on \(\{W=0\}\). Several additional properties are established.
