  • Patent number: 11367087
    Abstract: Systems and methods herein log traffic to and from a device on a network. Logging can occur using a metering device, router, proxy, or other elements. For example, a metering device operatively coupled to a routing device can log the traffic directed to and originating from a user device. Logged traffic can be analyzed to identify users, devices, and/or sessions. For example, an identifier unique to the user device in the session, a device type of the user device, and a specific user of the device during the session can be identified.

  • Patent number: 11343216
    Abstract: Systems and methods for promoting user engagement with messaging, such as advertising are presented. Specific marketing communications may be evaluated by measuring user responsiveness, such as the respective times at which advertising and other messages may be sent to a user and at which a user may respond, and using these measurements to determine a relative value of the advertising and other messages based on a time decay analytical approach. This approach may include sending an electronic communication to a user interface at a first time for display, sending an electronic message, such as an e-mail or text message to the user at a second time, sending a physical mailing to the user at a third time, receiving a user response at a fourth time, determining the time that elapsed between the fourth time and each of the first, second and third times, and assigning a relative value to each of these messaging events.

  • Patent number: 11303550
    Abstract: Described embodiments provide systems and methods for monitoring server utilization and reallocating resources using upper bound values. A device can determine a value indicative of an upper bound of a processing load of a server using data points detected for the processing load over a first range of time. The upper bound can correspond to a percentage of the processing load during the first range of time. The device can monitor, using the value, the processing load of the server over a second range of time. A determination can be made whether the value of the processing load is greater than a threshold during the second range of time. The device can generate an alert for the device responsive to a comparison of the value of the processing load to the threshold.
