Network applications may require a guaranteed rate of throughput, which may be accomplished by using buffer memory reservation to manage a data queue used to store incoming packets. Buffer memory reservation reserves a portion of a data queue as a dedicated queue for each flow, reserves another portion of a data queue as a shared queue, and associates a portion of the shared queue with each flow. The amount of the buffer memory reserved by the dedicated queue sizes and the shared queue portion sizes for all of the flows may exceed the amount of physical memory available to buffer incoming packets.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
