In one embodiment, data segments routed through a switch fabric are identified as being either a first or a second type. First and second counters are maintained for a destination node to characterize the transmission of data segments of the corresponding type within the switch fabric. For each first-type time period, all transmitted data segments are identified as being the first type. For each second-type time period, all transmitted data segments are identified as being the second type. The first- and second-type time periods are interleaved. The first counter is reset after termination of each first-type time period and the second counter is reset after termination of each second-type time period to correct for a possible error in characterizing the transmission of the data segments within the switch fabric during the corresponding time period.
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.
