  • Patent number: 10326654
    Abstract: A method for optimizing entity-specific configuration systems for functional entities of a network element of a software-defined network is presented. The entity-specific configuration systems are based on a network element-specific configuration system related to the whole network element and comprising configuration entries for determining operations to be carried out by the network element. The method comprises forming (401) relation data that indicates, for each of the functional entities, those of the configuration entries which are irrelevant to the functional entity under consideration so that operation of the functional entity is independent of these configuration entries. The relation data enables the entity-specific configuration systems to be constructed (402) so that the entity-specific configuration system of each functional entity is free from those configuration entries which, according to the relation data, are irrelevant to the functional entity under consideration.

  • Patent number: 10289375
    Abstract: A system and related operating methods that achieve shared screen verification are presented here. One operating method begins by establishing a desktop sharing session between a publisher device and a viewer device, during which the publisher device renders a publisher display and the viewer device renders a viewer display that corresponds to the publisher display. The method continues by capturing first framebuffer data for a frame of the publisher display, capturing second framebuffer data for the corresponding frame of the viewer display. The method processes the first framebuffer data and/or the second framebuffer data to obtain processed framebuffer data having a consistent display resolution. Thereafter, the method compares the processed second framebuffer data to the processed first framebuffer data to obtain a measure of quality.

  • Patent number: 10284422
    Abstract: Resource limited devices may be provided with a communications module enabling the resource limited device to communicate with a more powerful user computing system using a personal area networking protocol. The communications with the user computing system may be used to configure the resource limited device and/or its communications module to communicate with a remote computing system using a local or wide area networking protocol. This technology may shift processing functions that cannot be performed by resource-limited processors of the electronic device to more powerful computing systems, including, but not limited to cloud based systems. Bridges may also coordinate communications between multiple resource limited devices and the more powerful computing systems. Shifting these processing functions to more powerful computing systems may avoid the need for device manufacturers to include more expensive processors and may reduce device manufacturing costs. Devices and methods are provided.

  • Patent number: 10205677
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a method for cloud resource placement optimization. A resources monitor monitors state information associated with cloud resources and physical hosts in the federated cloud having a plurality of clouds managed by a plurality of cloud providers. A rebalance trigger triggers a rebalancing request to initiate cloud resource placement optimization based on one or more conditions. A cloud resource placement optimizer determines an optimized placement of cloud resources on physical hosts across the plurality of clouds in the federated cloud based on (1) costs including migration costs, (2) the state information, and (3) constraints, wherein each physical host is identified in the constraints-driven optimization solver by an identifier of a respective cloud provider and an identifier of the physical host. A migrations enforcer determines an ordered migration plan and transmits requests to place or migrate cloud resources according to the ordered migration plan.

  • Patent number: 10205627
    Abstract: The current document is directed to methods and systems for processing, classifying, and efficiently storing large volumes of event messages generated in modern computing systems. In a disclosed implementation, received event messages are normalized to identify non-parameter tokens within the event messages. The non-parameter event tokens are used to compute a metric for each event message. The metrics are used, in turn, to identify a type-associated cluster to which to assign each received event message. The type-associated clusters are created dynamically as streams of event messages are processed. The type-associated clusters may be dynamically split and merged to refine event-message typing.
