A method and system for shaping traffic in a multi-level queuing hierarchy are disclosed. The hierarchy includes a high priority channel and a low priority channel, wherein traffic on the low priority channel is fragmented and interleaved with traffic from the high priority channel and traffic combined from the high priority and low priority channels has a maximum shape rate. The method includes linking a high priority token bucket to a low priority token bucket, transmitting data from the high priority channel, and decrementing the low priority token bucket by an amount corresponding to the data transmitted. Data is transmitted from the low priority channel only if the low priority bucket has available tokens.
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.
