  • Patent number: 11330079
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for distributing an application across multiple nodes. An embodiment operates by determining a first local state of a first bundle and a second local state of a second bundle, wherein the application comprises the first bundle and the second bundle. The embodiment calculates the first bundle is to be stored at a first node and the second bundle is to be stored at a second node based on a first level configuration file and a second level configuration file. The embodiment compares the first local state of the first bundle to a first remote state of the first node and the second local state of the second bundle to a second remote state of the second node. The embodiment then transmits the first bundle to the first node and the second bundle to the second node.

  • Patent number: 11297032
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a method, a device, and a non-transitory computer readable medium for detecting user migration from an enterprise network to a non-enterprise network by using DNS probing. The method includes detecting at least one of a change in state of network connection and change in operational state of a user migration computing device. A domain name system (DNS) query is generated in response to detecting the at least one of a change in state of network connection and change in operational state of a user migration computing device. Further, the DNS query is sent to at least one of a plurality of DNS servers. If an expected DNS response is received, it is determined that the user migration computing device is in the enterprise network. If expected DNS response is not received, that the user migration computing device is outside the enterprise network.

  • Patent number: 11296925
    Abstract: A network analyzer includes a storage and a processor to provide an answer to inquiry including an inquiry statement and device log. The storage stores first information indicating relation between a previously received inquiry statement and an answer for the inquiry statement and second information indicating relation between previously received device log and an answer for the device log. The processor selects a first answer candidate for a new inquiry statement and calculates a first degree of certainty of the first answer candidate based on the first information. The processor selects a second answer candidate for new device log corresponding to the new inquiry statement and calculates a second degree of certainty of the second answer candidate based on the second information. The processor determines an answer based on the first answer candidate, the first degree of certainty, the second answer candidate, and the second degree of certainty.

  • Patent number: 11265360
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for managing a secure data item that is jointly accessible by the first user and the second user. In the method a first system receives a data request comprising an instruction to transmit the secure data item to a second system. The first system identifies that the secure data item is jointly accessible by the first user and the second user, and in response transmits an authorisation request to the second user device. The authorisation request comprises a prompt for the second user to authorise the data request. The first system receives a grant message indicative of the second user granting the authorisation request and in response transmits the secure data item to the second system.

  • Patent number: 11245576
    Abstract: A blockchain-based configuration profile provisioning system includes a client device that generates and broadcasts a blockchain transaction that identifies the client device and is directed to a blockchain address that is included in a blockchain. A blockchain device receives the blockchain transaction broadcast by the client device, executes a smart contract associated with the blockchain address, and determines that the execution of the smart contract has provided an indication that the client device identified in the blockchain transaction is authorized to receive a configuration profile. In response, the blockchain device causes a configuration profile token to be generated and transmitted. A configuration profile system receives the configuration profile token and, in response, retrieves and transmits the configuration profile to the client device.

  • Patent number: 11240126
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing distributed tracing for application performance monitoring utilizing a distributed search engine in a microservices architecture. An example method comprises providing a user interface (UI) including a distributed trace indicating in real time the services invoked to serve an incoming HTTP request, the UI further including, in a single view, associated execution times for the services shown as a timeline waterfall. The distributed trace automatically propagates a trace ID to link services end-to-end in real time until a response to the request is served. The single view also provides graphs of response time information and the distribution of response times for the services. In response to selection of a particular element of the distribution, the UI provides respective timing details. The graphs and data shown on the single view can be filtered based on metadata input into a search field of the single view.

  • Patent number: 11240122
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a service detects that an event of a particular event type has occurred in a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN). The service activates, in response to detecting the occurrence of the event, a machine learning model to assess telemetry data regarding a first tunnel in the SD-WAN. The service predicts a failure of the first tunnel, based on the assessment of the telemetry data regarding the first tunnel by the machine learning model. The service proactively reroutes at least a subset of traffic on the first tunnel onto a second tunnel in the SD-WAN, in advance of the predicted failure of the first tunnel.
