Methods and apparatuses for low-overhead service availability and performance monitoring are provided. A contact attempt is sent to a machine running a service being monitored and associated with a port in the machine. A status of the service is updated as being unavailable, if no response is received within a predetermined period of time, and is updated based on the response, if the response is received within a predetermined period of time. If the response is an acknowledgment from the machine to proceed with a contact attempt for connecting to the port, the contact attempt is disconnected.
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.
