A database processing system including a plurality of partitioned databases. Data processing is performed with pieces of information processing apparatus associated with each of the partitioned databases respectively. In response to a query, a status table indicating availability of each information processing apparatus is read from the storage. Of the pieces of information processing apparatus for processing the received query, at least a serviceable one is determined as a process request destination. A process request corresponding to the query is transmitted to the information processing apparatus determined as the process request destination. The process request is received through a communication unit, and data on the database are consequently processed. A processing result is transmitted to a transmitting source through the communication unit.
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.
