This paper deals with a service system in which the processor must serve two types of impatient units. In the case of blocking, the first type units leave the system whereas the second type units enter a pool and wait to be processed later. We develop an exhaustive analysis of the system including embedded Markov chain, fundamental period and various classical stationary probability distributions. More specificp erformancem easures,s uch as the numbero f lost customersa nd other quantities,a re also considered.T he mathematicaal nalysiso f the model is based on the theory of Markov renewal processes, in Markov chains of M/G/1 type and in expressions of 'Takacs' equation' type.
