In this paper, we study the performance of Device-to-Device (D2D) communications with dynamic interference. In specific, we analyze the performance of frequency reuse among D2D links with dynamic data arrival setting. We first consider the arrival and departure processes of packets in a non-saturated buffer, which result in varying interference on a link based on the change of its backlogged state. The packet-level system behavior is then represented by a coupled processor queuing model, where the service rate varies with time due to both the fast fading and the dynamic interference effects. In order to analyze the queuing model, we formulate it as a Discrete Time Markov Chain (DTMC) and compute its steady-state distribution. Since the state space of the DTMC grows exponentially with the number of D2D links, we use the model decomposition and some iteration techniques in Stochastic Petri Nets (SPNs) to derive its approximate steady state solution, which is used to obtain the approximate performance metrics of the D2D communications in terms of average queue length, mean throughput, average packet delay and packet dropping probability of each link. Simulations are performed to verify the analytical results under different traffic loads and interference conditions.
