System and method for performing a hierarchical remote query in an electronic network

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #6477573.

A system and method for performing a hierarchical remote query in an electronic network comprises a local registry that classifies remote registries into discrete categories based upon the relative capability of their host devices. The local registry then broadcasts a remote query to the discrete categories of remote registries in a hierarchical sequence. The present invention thus propagates the remote query in a sequence that produces optimal likelihood of a successful remote query reply, while simultaneously conserving network resources and minimizing messaging traffic across the electronic network.
