  • Patent number: 11606300
    Abstract: A network address assigned to a virtual network interface of a packet transformation node of a flow management service is identified. A packet of a particular network flow associated with an application implemented at an isolated virtual network is sent to the network address. Using a rewrite directive generated at a rewriting decisions node of the service and cached at the packet transformation node, a transformed packet corresponding to a packet received at the packet transformation node is generated and transmitted to a destination.

  • Patent number: 11601335
    Abstract: Presented herein are systems, and methods thereof, that is configured to enter a maintenance mode to isolate itself from its neighbor and to gracefully cause neighbor devices to isolate themselves from the system, as to cause minimal or “zero” service disruption with its neighbors. The system broadcasts a maintenance-related message, via a standard transport layer, over routing protocols, to counter parts protocols at the neighbor device and waits for an acknowledgement message from the neighbor network devices. The broadcast and acknowledgement, through standard transport layer messaging, ensures that traffic generated by such protocols at the neighbor devices, regardless of manufacturer, are redirected before the system fully enters into the maintenance mode.

  • Patent number: 11595264
    Abstract: Network capacity is provisioned in a computing environment comprising a computing service provider and an edge computing network. A cost function is applied to usage data for a number of user endpoints at the edge computing network, a number and type of workloads at the edge computing network, offload capability of the edge computing network, and resource capacities at the edge computing network. An estimated network capacity is determined, where the workloads are dynamic, and the cost function is usable to optimize the network capacity with respect to one or more criteria.

  • Patent number: 11588889
    Abstract: A processing service of a provider network may protect media content from being tampered with when it is transmitted from the provider network/transcoder to untrusted networks (e.g., third-party networks/CDNs) and to a media player. The processing service (e.g., the transcoder) generates a public and a private key. The service uses the private key to digitally sign content portions (e.g., video frames) before distribution to untrusted CDNs. The provider network creates a manifest that includes the public key. To play the media content, the media player obtains a manifest that includes the public key (via a secure/trusted connection with the provider network). The media player may then obtain the media content from an untrusted edge server/CDN and validate it using the public key that was separately obtained from the manifest (to verify the content was not tampered with).

  • Patent number: 11582127
    Abstract: A reactive buffering system for use in IIoT data pipelines dynamically adjusts data accumulation and delivery by a node of a pipeline based on aggregated downstream metrics representing current data processing latencies of downstream nodes. Based on these downstream performance metrics, a reactive node that adjusts the size of the next data batch to be sent to an adjacent downstream node. The nodes of the data pipeline are configured to support a request-response based handshaking protocol whereby the nodes that send data to downstream nodes maintain up-to-date performance level information from adjacent downstream nodes. With this performance information, together with pipeline priorities, the sending node (or reactive node) adjusts the transmission rate and intermediate buffering of data. In this way, the nodes of the pipeline can dynamically regulate interim data storage to avoid overwhelming the pipeline system with too much data during periods of high latency.

  • Patent number: 11563628
    Abstract: Techniques discussed herein monitoring for and identifying failures in a cloud-computing environment. Proxy devices can be communicatively disposed between services of the cloud-computing environment. The proxy devices can capture call stack data corresponding to function calls between services. A directional graph can be generated based on that call stack data that represents the communication paths between cloud-computing resources (e.g., the services). Ingress paths to a service can be evaluated by calculating various metrics for each path. Using these metrics, failures can be isolated to a particular communication path and/or a particular, and potentially relatively distant, upstream service.

  • Patent number: 11563828
    Abstract: Systems and methods for establishing a connection with an edge application server are provided. A user equipment (UE) in a wireless communication network establishes a connection with an edge application server to offload the data processing of an application executing on the UE to the edge application server. The UE communicates key performance indicators (KPIs) associated with the application to the edge data network. The KPIs indicate the resources that application uses to process the data. In response, the UE receives edge application server parameters from multiple servers in the edge data network that meet or exceed the KPIs. The parameters include compute, graphical compute, memory and storage parameters with various levels of specificity. The UE selects one of the edge application servers to process the data on behalf of the application based on the parameters.

  • Patent number: 11563625
    Abstract: A method includes processing a user input for generating a non-deterministic finite automata tree (NFAT) correlation policy. The user input indicates one or more of a static condition or a dynamic condition for inclusion in the NFAT correlation policy. The static condition includes a comparison between a defined entity and a first fixed parameter. The dynamic condition includes a comparison between the defined entity and a variable parameter. An applicable NFAT element is generated that includes at least one of the NFAT correlation policy generated based on a determination that the user input indicates the static condition or a NFAT template generated based on a determination that the user input indicates the dynamic condition. Event data received from a network device is processed to detect a status of a network entity associated with a communication network based on the applicable NFAT element.
