I might have overlooked it, but in the manual I have only found some general indication for truncated families on page 88.
Do you have some indication as to how many records can be included in one request. I'm looking for upper limits that can still be handled in one request forIn situations when the requested family is very large (several hundred members), all of the members cannot be included in the response due to technical reasons. The patent-family structure is returned with attribute truncatedFamily="true" and only a limited number of family members are returned.
- family requests listing only numbers
- family requests including biblio
- family requests including legal
- family requests including biblio and legal
- Start with requesting a number list for the family
- Let a parser count the number of applications and publications
- If the counters permit, request the family with biblio and legal
- If the counters do not permit all at once, but still allow all biblio at once and all legal at once, run these two (with sufficient delay depending on the throttling parameters)
- Or, if over all limits, request the biblio information in batches of 100 using the bulk download as described in page 50 and request the legal status one by one. This also with sufficient delays depending on the throttling parameters returned.
Do you have defined such upper limits, or, if they are related to the throttling parameters, what is the throttling parameter based algorithm for determining such upper limits?
