  • Patent number: 10609125
    Abstract: The present application discloses a method and system for transmitting communication data. A specific implementation of the method comprises: receiving a connection request for transmitting communication data through a remote direct memory access network; determining a transmission type of the communication data according to the connection request; establishing a socket according to the transmission type; transmitting the communication data on the remote direct memory access network by using the socket; and deleting the socket when the transmission of the communication data is completed. This implementation improves the efficiency of transmitting communication data on a remote direct memory access (RDMA) network by a non-RDMA network.

  • Patent number: 10579561
    Abstract: A communication interface couples a transmission circuit with an interconnection network. The transmission circuit requests transmission of a predetermined amount of data. The communication interface receives data segments from the transmission circuit, stores the data segments in a memory, and verifies whether the memory contains the predetermined amount of data. When the memory contains the predetermined amount of data, the communication interface starts transmission of the data stored in the memory. Alternatively, when the memory contains an amount of data less than the predetermined amount of data, the communication interface determines a parameter that identifies the time that has elapsed since the transmission request or the first datum was received from the aforesaid transmission circuit, and verifies whether the time elapsed exceeds a time threshold. In the case where the time elapsed exceeds the time threshold, the communication interface starts transmission of the data stored in the memory.

  • Patent number: 10511558
    Abstract: The embodiments set forth techniques for sorting emails within an email application. The technique can include: (1) accessing a plurality of emails, where each email is included in a respective folder of one or more folders, (2) establishing a set of n-grams based on the plurality of emails, (3) for each n-gram in the set of n-grams: calculating a respective normalized entropy for the n-gram, and calculating a respective indexing power for the n-gram based on its respective normalized entropy, (4) ranking the n-grams based on their respective indexing powers to establish a ranked list of n-grams, and (5) establishing, for each folder of the one or more folders, a respective set of high-value n-grams based on the ranked list of n-grams. In turn, the high-value n-grams can be compared against n-grams of a new email to identify a target folder into which the new email should be sorted.

  • Patent number: 10484730
    Abstract: Techniques for estimation of bandwidth for transfer of video content in chunked transfer mode are described herein. A number of chunk samples may be collected during video content transmission. For each chunk sample, its respective delivery speed may be compared to its respective encoding bitrate. If the delivery speed is greater than or equal to the encoding bitrate, then the chunk sample may be included in a primary set of chunk samples. The primary set of chunk samples may be clustered into a lower speed cluster and a higher speed cluster. A representative speed, such as an average or weighted average speed, of the delivery speeds of the chunk samples in the lower speed cluster may be determined, and the bandwidth may be estimated based on the representative speed.

  • Patent number: 10469592
    Abstract: Methods, systems, computer-readable media, and apparatuses may provide virtualization of device management services (e.g., device drivers) dedicated managing a particular device and designed under for or under the assumption the particular device and the device management service will be utilized in a single session/user environment, so that virtual instances of the device management services may be used in a multi-session environment. Further, a redirection and/or virtualization layer may be created for each session in the multi-session environment to perform global database redirection, object name translation, and file system translation to ensure session boundaries are maintained and global/shared resources are not inappropriately altered by a session. As an example, the redirection/virtualization layer may redirect communications associated with a session and for a global resource to access a virtual instance of the resource specific to the session.
