  • Publication number: 20200258106
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer-readable medium are disclosed identification of demand for documentation for particular languages and facilitate modification of documentation to the particular languages based upon demand. A multi-region document revision model which includes a correction factor, provides for monitoring of how information is being consumed in different regions via different platforms. Identification is performed for demand for documentation for particular languages and facilitates modification of documentation to the particular languages based upon demand. Various internal and external social media platforms are searched to provide a data set which can then be used to customize a language set for a particular language. In certain implementations the documentation includes respective semantic files which are used by a /business unit to validate and update the documentation.

  • Patent number: 10742761
    Abstract: An inter-process communication (IPC) system, includes a first client engine, a first server engine, and a broker engine that is coupled to the first client engine. The broker engine initiates a first timer that is configured to reset when traffic is received from the first server engine while the first server engine is registered with the broker engine and coupled to the broker engine via a communication channel. The traffic that causes the first timer to reset includes at least one of: traffic generated by the first client engine to complete a request, and a first server-to-broker heartbeat message generated by the first server engine. The broker engine determines that the first timer has reached a predefined time amount, and in response, removes the registration of the first server engine and removes the communication channel between the broker engine and the first server engine.

  • Patent number: 10742776
    Abstract: Isochronous endpoints of a redirected USB device can be accelerated. When a USB device is redirected, each of the device's endpoints can be identified. A UDP socket can then be created between the client-side proxy and the server-side agent for each isochronous endpoint, while a TCP socket can be created for each other endpoint. A lookup table can also be created which maps pipe handles to socket IDs. The lookup table can be employed to route USB request blocks pertaining to a particular endpoint over the corresponding socket. In this way, USB request blocks pertaining to an isochronous endpoint will be transferred over the network using UDP while USB request blocks pertaining to non-isochronous endpoints will be transferred using TCP.
