  • Patent number: 11991069
    Abstract: Techniques and architecture are described grouping various sources of traffic within a network into grouping fields and assigning each combination of grouping field values an aggregate identification (ID). A first hop edge router may receive a packet and search a mapping table for a corresponding aggregate ID for the combination of grouping field values within the mapping table. If not found, the first hop edge router may assign a corresponding aggregate ID for the combination of grouping field values and store the new aggregate ID for the combination of grouping field values in the mapping table. The first hop edge router may forward the packet on through the network with the aggregate ID embedded in metadata. Routers within the network may measure and aggregate flow metrics of the packet within the network based on the aggregate ID and provide the measurements to the network controller.

  • Patent number: 11909593
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a computer implemented method for assessing network bandwidth availability in a network connection having unknown excess capacity beyond an initial network capacity is provided. There are two cases to be considered: (1) the network has a given capacity and the system doesn't know what it is (e.g., on a cellular network) this capacity may change over time as more users use the network and/or a user is mobile, and (2) the system is assigned capacity but by pushing the network, the system may be able to get more capacity (e.g., on a satellite hub). The excess capacity may be quantified for future potential opportunistic, emergency or priority usage, or in some embodiments, utilized periodically or continuously.

  • Patent number: 11870703
    Abstract: In a method for configuring and managing a Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) network, a network packet is regularly captured and parameters are extracted. The parameters are submitted to a distributed learning model for matching an application according to the parameters, and a network requirement of the application is obtained. Such obtained network requirements are uploaded to a centralized network configuration (CNC) through a message transmission protocol, and a configuration of the network requirement is calculated through the CNC. The configuration calculated by the CNC is received and delivered to a TSN switch, causing the TSN switch to dynamically update the network configuration accordingly.

  • Patent number: 11853361
    Abstract: A service monitoring system executing on one or more processors may have operations that are determined by control information. Control over the operation of the service monitoring system can be exerted through the use of a graphical interface. The graphical interface may present the control information of a new or existing correlation search definition for user interaction. The service monitoring system may maintain a data store of key performance indicator (KPI) data, where a KPI value in the data store is produced by a KPI-defining search query that derives the value from machine data associated with one or more entities that perform a monitored service. A correlation search definition of the service monitoring system determines how a search of the KPI data is conducted, how its data is evaluated to determine whether a triggering condition has been met, and, if so, determines what triggered action is to be initiated.
