Under limited channel state information at the transmitter the communication suffers from the outage events produced by a data rate selection not supported by the current channel realization. Automatic repeat request (ARQ) protocols are a useful tool to deal with those outage events in delay-tolerant services. This work looks into how Automatic Repeat Request(ARQ) protocols are applied to the half-duplex relay-assisted transmission with a decode-and-forward (DF) relay. The exploitation of ACK feedback channels from destination and relay leads to two possible implementations: 1) only-source manages the retransmission procedure or 2) both source and relay control the retransmissions. We analyze both options under a chase-combining ARQ protocol with limited number of transmission rounds, providing integral expressions for the throughput. This study allows the optimization transmission rate and the amount of resources allocated for the relay transmission.
