Inaccurate interpretation of historical performance management data of a network element and storage of redundant performance management data of a network element is prevented. A network element is polled for current performance management data, and if the current performance management data is determined to be the same as the performance management data collected during the previous polling of the network element, the current performance management data is discarded. Otherwise, the current performance management data is stored. Differentiation between performance management data related to a 'Not Available' condition and a 'Zero Suppressed' condition is provided through interpretation of performance management data.
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.
