  • Patent number: 10116746
    Abstract: A data storage method and a network interface card, where in this solution, buffered unsolicited data is written, in a direct memory access (DMA) manner, into storage space that corresponds to a destination address corresponding to the unsolicited data, and a rate of writing data in the DMA manner is higher than a rate of writing data in a copying manner. Therefore, time required in a data storage process is shortened and a storage efficiency is improved. In addition, because a write operation is performed by hardware of the network interface card, consumption of central processing unit (CPU) resources is reduced, which further reduces impact on processing rates of other application programs.

    Abstract: Methods and systems for a storage environment are provided. A policy for an input/output (I/O) stream having a plurality of I/O requests for accessing storage at a storage device of the storage sub-system is translated into flow attributes so that the I/O stream can be assigned to one of a plurality of queues maintained for placing I/O requests based on varying priorities defined by set polices. When an I/O request for the associated policy is received by the storage sub-system; the storage sub-system determines a flow attribute associated with the I/O request and the policy; selects a queue for staging the I/O request, such that the selected queue is of either higher priority than what is indicated by the flow attribute or at least of a same priority as indicated by the flow attribute; and allocates storage sub-system resource for processing the received I/O request.

  • Patent number: 10050931
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for releasing an Internet Protocol (IP) address by a Packet Data Network (PDN) GateWay (PGW) in a mobile communication system. The PGW allocates, to a User Equipment (UE), an Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) address and an Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address to activate a PDN connection. If the UE releases the IPv4 address: the PGW identifies whether a PDN type associated with the PDN connection is an IPv4/v6, which indicates that the UE is allocated both the IPv4 address and the IPv6 address; the PGW transmits, to a Serving GateWay (SGW), a Binding Revocation message including information indicating release of the IPv4 address with the PDN connection remaining if the PDN type is the IPv4/v6; and the PGW receives, from the SGW, a Binding Revocation acknowledge message to acknowledge release of the IPv4 address.

  • Patent number: 10044578
    Abstract: Dynamic reporting rates for a log management system are adaptively allocated. Each individual controller node device of plurality of controller nodes is initially allocated an EPS rate limit for submitting event records to a log management system (e.g., an SIEM log management system) out of a licensed EPS rate. When surges are detected, the log management system dynamically reallocates proportions of EPS rates, within the licensed EPS rate. The individual EPS rate limit for at least one collector node is adjusted in real-time for a specific controller node based on under usage by other collector nodes. Another technique is to prioritize or weight events causing the surge to determine adjustments to EPS rate.
