A scheduler for a network processor includes a scheduling queue in which weighted fair queuing is applied to define a sequence in which flows are to be serviced. The scheduling queue includes at least a first subqueue and a second subqueue. The first subqueue has a first range and a first resolution, and the second subqueue has an extended range that is greater than the first range and a lower resolution that is less than the first resolution. Flows that are to be enqueued within the range of highest precision to the current pointer of the scheduling queue are attached to the first subqueue. Flows that are to be enqueued outside the range of highest precision from the current pointer of the scheduling queue are attached to the second subqueue. Numerous other aspects are provided.
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.
