  • Patent number: 10447638
    Abstract: Data loss prevention (“DLP”) rules can be automatically applied to items during a migration. When a migration is performed, a migration engine may be configured with migration configuration settings which define the items to be migrated from the source system to the target system. The migration engine may also be configured with DLP configuration settings which define the type of items on which DLP should be performed. When the DLP configuration settings indicate that DLP should be applied to an item to be migrated, the migration engine routes the item to a DLP engine rather than directly migrating the item to the target system. After the DLP engine has processed the item, the DLP engine can return the processed item to the migration engine which in turn can migrate the processed item to the appropriate location in the target system.

  • Patent number: 10439887
    Abstract: A generic framework for testing service interfaces where attributes for service access are abstracted from test execution attributes. An eXtensible Markup Language (XML) Service Attribute (SA) file may be used to define a server tag and one or more services tags. The server tag specifies protocol, address, and other access information for a host machine that provides the service. A service type and configuration parameter defaults may also be included with the server tag. Each service tag defines a name of a corresponding service, and a request-response configuration for the corresponding service. With this information in hand, a test executor can then issue a request message to the corresponding service indicated in the service tag, using the protocol and address information and request configuration, and match the response received against the response configuration.

  • Patent number: 10425297
    Abstract: Technologies are described herein for adaptive polling based upon demand. A data source is polled for data at a first polling frequency. A request is received for a page or other type of resource that includes the data, and the data is provided in response to the request. Subsequently, the data source is polled for the data at a second polling frequency greater than the first polling frequency. Status messages are also received indicating a status of a display of the page. The polling frequency may be adjusted based on the status messages. For example, the polling frequency may be increased if a status message indicates that a user is viewing the data. The polling frequency may be decreased if a status message indicates that the data is not being viewed or that a page or other type of resource for presenting the data has been closed.

  • Patent number: 10394430
    Abstract: A system for relationship information evaluation and management. The system incorporates relationship quality parameters that define the contextual parameters of quality, which are mutually validated and are accepted by the respective parties within an existing or prospective relationship. A computer, computing device, written documents or other means are used to capture the perspectives of each person, representative, or entity within the relationship or prospective relationship. This can be done automatically, on a random, periodic, or scheduled basis, or upon manual initiation. The information or data may then be analyzed and coalesced into a meaningful whole (or segments thereof), which may then be archived, printed, reported, and presented to one or both of the parties, or others.

  • Patent number: 10374936
    Abstract: Techniques are described to reduce false alarms in network devices utilizing keepalive messaging schemes. In order to potentially avoid false alarms, a transmitting network device adjusts quality of service QOS/TOS settings in keep-alive probe packets that are sent later in a current detection interval such that the keep-alive probe packets have escalating priorities. In addition, for keep-alive probe packets that are sent later in the current detection interval, the network device may also insert host-level preferential indicator within each of the packets to request preferential treatment at both itself and the peer network device.

  • Patent number: 10305968
    Abstract: A CCN network node use reputation values for one or more interfaces to determine how to forward an Interest. During operation, the network node can receive an Interest or Content Object via a network interface, determines one or more candidate outbound faces for forwarding the Interest by performing a longest-prefix-matching lookup in a forwarding information base (FIB) using the Interest's name or name prefix as input. A respective FIB entry maps a name prefix to a forwarding rule that includes a corresponding outbound face for the name prefix. The node can determine a reputation value for each of the candidate outbound faces based on reputation information stored in association with the Interest's name or name prefix, and selects a candidate outbound face with a reputation value exceeding a first predetermined threshold. The node can then forward the received Interest via the selected outbound face.

  • Patent number: 10298719
    Abstract: If it is determined that a delivery permission flag of a network device being a delivery target of a software program is inactivated (OFF), a delivery server instructs a set-value management server to activate (ON) the delivery permission flag of the network device being the delivery target. The set-value management server activates the delivery permission flag of the network device in response to the instruction and notifies the completion to the delivery server. The delivery server performs delivery preparation for the software program in response to the notification of the completion and, after the delivery preparation, controls the delivery of the software program in response to a request from a network device with the delivery permission flag activated.

  • Patent number: 10298648
    Abstract: A distributed system processing a publisher's streaming data. The distributed system comprises multiple workers and publisher data stores, each publisher data store dedicated to a worker and a publisher. A sampling ratio (the fraction of data items for storage in the publisher's data store) is selected by a publisher data store's worker based on historical information. At least two workers select different sampling ratios. Data items representing an interaction between an entity and the publisher are received. Each data item is assigned to a worker for processing. A hash function is applied to the data item's identifier, resulting in a key value falling within the hash function's range. The scope of the publisher's data store is equal to the hash function's range multiplied by the sampling ratio of the publisher's data store. A data item with a key value within the scope of the publisher's data store is stored therein.

  • Patent number: 10277489
    Abstract: Providing dynamic latency in an integration flow. An integration flow connecting multiple integration nodes and including at least one repeat node is managed, wherein a repeat node repeats by sending a message, a variation of a message, or an element of a message to multiple paths or to a single path multiple times. A repeat node is registered with a workload manager component for monitoring. Data relating to the effect on performance by the integration flow including the monitored repeat node is collected. Required latencies or variations of latencies between firing of repeats of the repeat node based on the collected data are determined. The latencies or variations of latencies between firing of the repeats of the repeat node are instructed to influence dynamically a flow of elements through the repeat node.
