A method is provided in one example embodiment and includes receiving at a controller an Address Resolution Protocol (“ARP”) packet from a source VXLAN Tunnel End Point (“VTEP”) serving a source host and identifying a destination, the source VTEP having assigned thereto a Virtual Network Identifier (“VNI”) identifying a VXLAN network to which the source VTEP and a plurality of other VTEPs belong, the ARP packet being received by the controller via a control plane; determining whether the received ARP packet is a request message; and, if the received ARP packet is a request message, determining whether address information for the identified destination is stored in a cache of the controller. The method further includes, if the destination address information is stored in the cache of the controller, sending a proxy ARP response to the source VTEP via the control plane, in which the proxy ARP response includes the destination address information; and if the destination address information is not stored in the cache of the controller, sending the request message to each one of the plurality of other VTEPs having the same VNI as the source VTEP via the control plane.
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.
