  • Patent number: 11609902
    Abstract: The invention relates to method for adjusting the minimum and maximum number of peer nodes that a node on the blockchain network will connect with. The adjustment takes in to account the bandwidth and processing capability of the node. Bandwidth capacity of a node is determined based on a maximum data amount processable by the node over a time period. Data is monitored passing through interfaces of the node, to and from peer nodes, and a profile factor of the node is determined from the difference between the input data to output data. Over a plurality of time periods monitoring said data the data analysed is used to set a minimum number of peer nodes and a maximum number of peer nodes connectable to the node according to said monitored data and the maximum number of peers connectable to the node. The method enables a node to adjust the number of connections according to performance limitation factors, such as bandwidth availability and processing performance.

  • Patent number: 11595345
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a network controller that manages multiple logical networks implemented by multiple managed forwarding elements (MFEs) operating on multiple host machines. The method receives a notification from a particular MFE that an interface corresponding to a logical port of a logical forwarding element has connected to the particular MFE and has a particular logical network address. The method assigns a unique physical network address to the interface. Each of multiple interfaces connected to the particular MFE is assigned a different physical network address. The method provides the assigned unique physical network address to the particular MFE for the particular MFE to convert data messages sent from the particular logical network address to have the unique physical network address.

  • Patent number: 11570225
    Abstract: A method, a system, and a computer program product for determining whether signals are received by one or more devices in a virtual meeting. The method includes transmitting a data stream received from one or more host computing devices to one or more user computing devices in a plurality of user computing devices. The host and user computing devices are communicatively coupled using a real-time online connection. A first hash in a plurality of hashes is generated by the server using a portion of the data stream and stored in a memory location. The first hash is compared to a second hash received from the user computing devices. The second hash is generated by the user computing devices upon receipt of the transmitted data stream. Based on the comparison, a status of the real-time online connection between the host computing devices and the user computing devices is determined.
