  • Patent number: 11968110
    Abstract: A method for providing cloud network reachability analysis includes receiving a reachability query requesting a reachability status of a target including a packet header associated with a data packet. The packet header includes a source IP address and a destination IP address. The method also includes generating one or more simulated forwarding paths for the data packet based on the packet header using a data plane model. Each simulated forwarding path includes corresponding network configuration information. The method includes determining the reachability status of the target based on the one or more simulated forwarding paths and providing the determined reachability status and the one or more simulated forwarding paths to a user device associated with the reachability query which causes the user device to present the network configuration information for each simulated forwarding path.

  • Patent number: 11949565
    Abstract: A communication management apparatus includes circuitry that manages first communication in which a terminal apparatus transmits content data to another terminal apparatus via a relay apparatus. The circuitry receives, from the terminal apparatus, a determination of whether the terminal apparatus is communicable with the another terminal apparatus through second communication that bypasses the relay apparatus. Based on a determination that the terminal apparatus is communicable with the another terminal apparatus through the second communication, the circuitry restricts a communication bandwidth for the first communication of the another terminal apparatus determined to be communicable with the terminal apparatus through the second communication.

  • Patent number: 11943151
    Abstract: Systems and methods which facilitate access to computing resources by cloud-based applications are described. Embodiments enable cloud-based applications to provide output to and/or obtain input from computing resources, such as printers, scales, scanners, and storage devices, for performing various functions. In operation according to embodiments, a user agent client application is executed by computing equipment in communication with a computing resource to which access is to be provided to one or more cloud-based applications. Although embodiments implement a user interface client application which is separate from a user agent client application, tight integration between a user interface client application and user agent client application may be provided. Embodiments not only facilitate operation whereby a cloud-based application is enabled to provide output to and/or obtain input from computing resources, but also facilitate remote and/or shared client interaction with such computing resources.

  • Patent number: 11916741
    Abstract: Systems that determine relationships between network components of a cluster using packet filters are disclosed. A system can identify objects that implement services of a cluster and network connections associated with respective pairs of the objects. The system can also filter out network connections from the identified network connections. The filtering can remove connections between source objects and destination objects based on the destination objects lacking any components that implement a service in cluster. The filtering can also retain network connections between source objects and destination objects based on the source objects including components that each implement at least one service, and based on the second destination object including components that each implement at least one service. Additionally, the system can generate relationship maps and network topologies using the determined relationships.

  • Patent number: 11870740
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is generally directed to chatbot conversation management. In one example of the technology, a generic model associated with a first property associated with a chatbot manager is received. The generic model is generated based on machine learning. A refined model that is associated with the first property is generated based on the generic model and a first plurality of phrases. A first conversation is held between a chatbot and an end user. Upon determining that the value of the first property for the end user is not stored in the database, via the chatbot, during the first conversation, the refined model is used to dynamically ask questions to the end user to determine a value of the first property for the end user. In a second conversation between the chatbot and the end user, the value of the first property for the end user is referenced.
