  • Patent number: 10444810
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automatic power control and unusual activity detections for thin client computing devices. In operation, the server receives messages from the thin clients, with each message corresponding to a activity occurred at the thin clients. The server then analyzes the messages and generates usage patterns of the thin client computing devices. Based on the usage patterns, the server may generate automatic power control schedules for the computing devices, and control power of each of the computing devices based on the automatic power control schedules. Further, the server may monitor unusual activities occurred at the computing devices based on the messages and the usage patterns of the computing devices.

  • Patent number: 10334045
    Abstract: A method includes transmitting a first write request that includes a first encoded data slice of a first data object encoded under a first encoding scheme, and a first slice identifier corresponding to the first encoded data slice assigned to a first memory location of a distributed storage network (DSN) based on the first slice identifier. A second write request that includes a second encoded data slice of the first data object encoded under a second encoding scheme, and a second slice identifier corresponding to the second encoded data slice, is transmitted, and the second encoded data slice is assigned to a second memory location of the DSN based on the second slice identifier. A request to access the first data object is received. A derived second slice identifier is generated in response to determining that the first data object requested for access is stored under multiple encoding schemes.

  • Patent number: 10318325
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to host-side cache migration. An aspect is a method that includes determining pre-fetch hints associated with a source cache that is local to a source host machine. The source cache includes pages of cache data for a virtual machine. The pre-fetch hints are sent to a pre-fetch planner to create a pre-fetch plan. The pre-fetch hints are sent based on migration of the virtual machine to a target host machine including a target cache that is local. At the source host machine, a cache migration request is received based on the pre-fetch plan. A first subset of the pages is sent from the source cache through a host-to-host communication channel to the target cache based on the cache migration request. A second subset of the pages is sent from the source cache through a host-storage communication channel to a shared storage to be relayed to the target cache.

  • Patent number: 10313221
    Abstract: An endpoint monitoring for a machine to machine (M2M) messaging framework system is disclosed. The system comprises a monitoring server and a monitoring application stored in a memory of the monitoring server. When executed by a processor of the monitoring server, the monitoring application queries a plurality of brokers that are communicatively coupled with a plurality of message queue telemetry transport (MQTT) clients for data regarding the rate of disconnections that occur between the brokers and the MQTT clients. The monitoring application compares the data received from the brokers and compares the rate of disconnections to data in an information data store. If a high rate of disconnections is discovered in at least one of the broker to MQTT client connections, the monitoring application takes action, for example reboots an MQTT client and/or sends a notification message.

  • Patent number: 10158596
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for proposing automatic corrections of online identifiers, such as an email address or a subject name of a directory entry or a certificate. In an embodiment, one or more computers store domain correction records. Each domain correction record comprises a misspelled domain name and candidate domain name corrections. The computers detect that an unprocessed online identifier is not contained in a plurality of known online identifiers. The unprocessed online identifier comprises a misspelled domain name. Each known online identifier of the plurality of known online identifiers comprises a domain name. The computers retrieve, based on the misspelled domain name of the unprocessed online identifier, from the plurality of domain correction records, a matching domain correction record having a same misspelled domain name as the unprocessed online identifiers. A client device displays the one or more candidate domain name corrections of the matching domain correction record.

  • Patent number: 10097628
    Abstract: Techniques disclosed herein describe methods for achieving resource affinity and scalability in dynamic environments by calculating the modulus of a numeric request identifier against a fixed selection of numbers. Using the proposed techniques yields a numeric request identifier and resource identifier combination that ensures a given resource possesses the unique state applicable to that user's request. Using a fixed selection of numbers thus maintains resource affinity while achieving scalability as resources are added to or subtracted from a pool of resources.

  • Patent number: 8601069
    Abstract: A method and system for message multicasting which provides a programmable persistent header in a message to allow one message to be read by multiple target consumers and to ensure that the message passing mechanism does not delete the message until all target consumers have received it. The persistent header may have information about all target consumers and their priority to consume the message. A message parser may obtain from the persistent header identities of target consumers and the order in which they consume the message and allow target consumers to consume the message following the order. The message parser may have a counter which counts the number of consumers that have consumed the message, and keep the message in the queue until all target consumers have consumed the message.
