  • Patent number: 10708166
    Abstract: A method and a first device (110) of a switched network (100), for managing data frames received, at a first port, from a second device (120) are disclosed. The first device (110) handles the first port and a second port for transfer of data frames between the first and second devices (110, 120). The first device (110) is addressable by a Media Access Control address, “MAC address”, associated with the first port. The first device (110) receives (201), from the second device (120), at least one data frame at the second port. The first device (110) sends (202), on the first port, a message including the MAC address associated with the first port.

  • Patent number: 10681105
    Abstract: An online system receives content (e.g. video content and/or audio content) from a content provider device to be appropriately transcoded and distributed to client devices for consumption. During the transcoding process, the online system decodes the content into an intermediate format, and. considers a variety of characteristics to decide the optimal set of content encodings for encoding the decoded content. Characteristics include source characteristics associated with the content provider device, social graph characteristics of the user of the online system that is using the content provider device, viewer characteristics associated with the client devices that request to access the content, and content characteristics. The online system encodes the content for each client device with appropriate encoders selected based on the optimal set of content encodings.

  • Patent number: 10673731
    Abstract: An event analysis system receives events in a time-series from a set of monitored systems and identifies a set of alert threshold values for each of the types of events to identify outliers in the time-series at an evaluated time. Portions of historic event data is selected to identify windows of event data near the evaluated time at a set of seasonally-adjusted times to predict the value of the event type. The alert threshold value may also account for a prediction based on recent, higher-frequency events. Using the alert threshold values for a plurality of event types, the event data is compared with the alert threshold values to determine an alert level for the data. The event data types are also clustered and displayed with the alert levels to provide a visualization of the event data and identify outliers when the new event data is received.

  • Patent number: 10673971
    Abstract: Techniques are described for employing a queue service as an intermediary to communicate messages between separate networks. A first proxy service may access a request generated by a client device operating in a first network, the request initially indicating a destination that is a server device operating in a second network. The request may be an application level protocol request. The first proxy service may modify the request to include, as a destination, a queue maintained by a queue service that is accessible from the first and second networks. The first proxy service may enqueue the modified request in the queue. A second proxy service operating in the second network may retrieve the enqueued request and communicate the request to the server device. One or more responses generated by the server device may be enqueued in a queue by the second proxy service for delivery to the client device.
