  • Patent number: 11775360
    Abstract: A method executes inter-enclave communication via cache memory of a processor. The method includes: instantiating a first enclave such that it is configured to execute a first communication thread, which is configured to read/write data to the cache memory; instantiating a second enclave such that it is configured to execute a second communication thread, which is configured to read/write data to cache memory; executing, by the first enclave, the first communication thread to send message data to the second enclave, executing the first communication thread comprising writing the message data to the cache memory; and executing, by the second enclave, the second communication thread to receive the message data. Executing the second communication thread can include: monitoring the cache memory to determine whether the data message is being sent; and based upon determining the data message is being sent, reading from the cache memory to receive the data message.

  • Patent number: 11768720
    Abstract: Pausing alert notifications includes triggering an alert responsive to an event in a managed environment. A normalized title is obtained from a title of the alert. Using the normalized title, it is determined whether the alert is of a likely transient type, where the alert is of the likely transient type when it is predicted to resolve without human intervention. A transmission of notifications for the alert during a pause period is withheld responsive to determining that the alert is the likely transient type. A notification for the alert is transmitted to a responder responsive to determining that the alert is unresolved after the pause period.

  • Patent number: 11763217
    Abstract: A configuration server is provided including one or more processors and a workflow generator executing on the one or more processors. The workflow generator is configured to generate a workflow corresponding to a feature of a service. The configuration server also includes a client user interface configured to receive requests from a client user to enable or disable the feature of the service. A service director is configured to control deployment of the feature of the service by placing the workflow corresponding to the feature in an active state or an inactive state responsive to client requests. Responsive to a determination that the workflow is in the active state, the service director communicates the workflow to a deployment server. The feature associated with the workflow is available to an end user accessing the service when the workflow is communicated to the deployment server.

  • Patent number: 11748176
    Abstract: An information handling system and method for managing event messages in a distributed computing environment employing a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) architecture in which a central controller is configured to send heartbeats, indicative of a message handling capacity of the central controller, to a plurality of nodes within a management domain of the controller. Each node maintains an event messaging state of the central controller based on the heartbeats. When a node detects the occurrence of a reportable event, the node determines a reporting policy corresponding to the event messaging state of the central controller and takes an event message action in accordance with the reporting policy. The event message action may include sending the event message without delay or storing the event message for subsequent sending.

  • Patent number: 11734089
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described for dynamic option reselection in virtual assistant (VA) communication sessions. A chat session is established between a VA application and a remote computing device. The VA application captures a first conversation intent generated by a user of the remote device, where the first conversation intent is part of a first workflow. The VA application generates an option selection feature based upon the first conversation intent, comprising a plurality of options and associated with a reference identifier. The VA application receives a selection of a first option in the option selection feature from the remote device. The VA application initiates a second workflow in response to the selected. The VA application detects a selection of a second option in the option selection feature from the remote device and restores the chat session to a state in the first workflow using the reference identifier.

  • Patent number: 11720396
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media for application programming interface (API) request throttling. A request throttling system monitors incoming API requests and applies delays to repeated API requests to avoid an overload and/or disruption in service. Upon receiving an API request from a requesting device, the request throttling system determines a counter value that is used to determine whether to apply a delay to API request. The counter value indicates a number or previous requests received from the requesting device that were directed to the same resource and which resulted in an error. The request throttling system compares the counter value to a threshold value to determine whether to apply a delay to the API request. Applying a delay reduces the speed at which subsequent repeat API requests are received from the requesting device, while still allowing for API requests from the requesting device to be processed.

  • Patent number: 11709723
    Abstract: Aspects of a cloud service framework are described. In some examples, a noncompliance event is received. The noncompliance event is identified using parameters detected from a deployment of hardware resources and software resources provided by a cloud service according to a service level agreement (SLA). An application programming interface (API) associated with the noncompliance event is identified. The API is disabled by updating an API availability status. A request to invoke the API is received, and the API is prevented from being forwarded to a backend service that provides the API.

  • Patent number: 11709724
    Abstract: Cloud computing techniques utilizing distributed application execution are disclosed herein. One example technique includes receiving a command to launch an application, and in response, determining an execution location corresponding to a type of data consumed by individual components of the application. Upon determining that one of the components is to be executed in a local computing facility, the example technique includes transmitting, from a public computing facility to the local computing facility, a request to execute the one of the components in the local computing facility instead of the public computing facility. Upon being authorized by the local computing facility, data is requested and received from the one of the components executed at the local computing facility without having direct access from the public computing facility to a data source at the local computing facility.
