A Random Early Detection (RED) policer in accordance with the invention does not tail-drop arriving packets as being non-conforming. For instance, because the RED policer uses a running estimate such as an exponential weighted moving average (EWMA), for example, it allows the policer to absorb traffic bursts. The policer uses randomization in choosing which packets to drop; with this method, the probability of dropping a packet from a particular sending node is roughly proportional to the node's bandwidth share, hence the packets of different flows are fairly dropped.
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.
