  • Patent number: 10432734
    Abstract: According to an example, to tune a cloud service, an event and an event type on a cloud server application are detected by monitoring at least one of a hardware value and a software value. An application parameter to tune is determined based on the event type, and a tuning priority of the application parameter based on historical tuning data is fetched. The application parameter is tuned by modifying a software variable. In the event that tuning the application parameter resolves the event type, the tuning priority of the parameter is increased. In the event that tuning the parameter fails to resolve the event type, the parameter priority is decreased, the tuning is rolled back, and a default tune setting is invoked.

  • Patent number: 10425470
    Abstract: Partitions of a hosted computing service may be maintained on a computing node. Processing of requests to access the partition may be limited to constrain capacity utilization to a provisioned amount of capacity reserved for the partition. A second, additional amount of capacity may be associated with the partition and may reflect potential future changes to the provisioned amount of capacity. A sum of provisioned and additional capacities associated with partitions on a computing node may be calculated. The computing node may be ranked, relative to other computing nodes, for maintaining new or relocated partitions based on the sum.

  • Patent number: 10419503
    Abstract: A near real time data tailing mechanism can enable data, received on a stream, to be directed to a specified location independent of any processing and persistent storage of that data. A customer can submit a tail request that can be received to a front end of a data management service. When a request is received to store data to the persistent storage, a determination is made that the front end has registered a tail for that data stream and the host receiving the data can forward a copy of the data to the front end, which can cause the data to be transmitted to the specified location. One or more filters can be applied in order to cause only specific data to be transmitted for the tail request. A best effort approach provides an overview of the data in near real time.

  • Patent number: 10410306
    Abstract: A method and system for providing remote access to data for display on a client computer via a computer network is provided. A first and second server computer connected to a computer network execute a first and second server remote access program, respectively, for communicating with an associated first and second application program. The client computer, which is also connected to the computer network, executes a client remote access program for simultaneously communicating with the first and second server remote access programs via a first and second communication link. The first and second server remote access programs determine first and second presentation data indicative of an application state of the first and second application programs. The client remote access program receives the first and the second presentation data and determines display data in dependence thereupon for substantially simultaneously displaying the first and the second presentation data.

  • Patent number: 10404633
    Abstract: An enhanced instant messaging processing method is presented to users in an instant messaging communication environment. For a user having two or more communication terminals that have logged into a same instant messaging account of the user, a communication server monitors invitations sent to the instant messaging account. Responsive to one communication terminal responding to the invitation and the type of the response, the communication server generates a response policy for each of other communication terminals of the user, where the response policy optimizes the instant communication performance and enhances the user experience. The disclosed embodiments also support simultaneous instant communications among a large number of users connected to multiple data processing servers.

  • Patent number: 10397179
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing sourcing Internet access requests from ISP subscribers serviced by a gateway not physically located near the subscribers. As the localization needs of all subscribers are not necessarily the same, the gateway determines an appropriate source IP address to use to ensure that the IP protocol localization features work efficiently. In addition, the gateway can help enforce rules related to the governing law of the geographic area of the subscriber and/or rules based on the content providers licensing. Through determination of the context of a request, the gateway may also determine whether localized sourcing of a request is necessary based on the type of content being requested.
