A method for policing traffic on a computer communications network having a multitude of nodes interconnected by various communications media. An individual policer is established at each node for monitoring and/or policing the traffic incoming to that node. Traffic policy parameters are established for traffic-classes and the policy is implemented at each individual policer. Thresholds may be established and when the thresholds are met or exceeded the individual policer will export the traffic conditions at the respective node. The other individual policers or a master policer will receive the exported information. -The individual policers police the traffic incoming to its associated node depending on the traffic condition information received from all the nodes. Several classes may be handled by each individual policer. Leaky bucket algorithms may be used in some instances.
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.
