  • Patent number: 11500757
    Abstract: A system and method is disclosed for the automated identification of causal relationships between a selected set of trigger events and observed abnormal conditions in a monitored computer system. On the detection of a trigger event, a focused, recursive search for recorded abnormalities in reported measurement data, topological changes or transaction load is started to identify operating conditions that explain the trigger event. The system also receives topology data from deployed agents which is used to create and maintain a topological model of the monitored system. The topological model is used to restrict the search for causal explanations of the trigger event to elements of that have a connection or interact with the element on which the trigger event occurred. This assures that only monitoring data of elements is considered that are potentially involved in the causal chain of events that led to the trigger event.

  • Patent number: 11412056
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a service worker processes network requests by proxying the network requests via a content distribution network. The service worker intercepts a network request from a client application, generates a duplicate network request, and changes certain elements of the duplicate network request. The intercepted request can be an initial document request used to load a webpage or a subsequent request that includes an application programming interface (API) call. The service worker transmits the duplicate network request to a content distribution network that proxies the duplicate request to a cloud computing system, thereby accelerating that request.
