Abstract We consider a system consisting of a source-destination communication link. At the transmitter of the source there is a buffer that stores packets containing status information. These randomly generated packets should keep the destination timely updated and they can be discarded to avoid wasting network resources for the transmission of stale information. In this setup, we provide an analysis of the age of information (AoI) and peak age of information (PAoI) performance of the system, with and without packet management at the transmission queue of the source node. The analysis indicates the potential performance gains obtained with the use of packet management.
