  • Patent number: 11456937
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for the proactive failover of groups of Virtualized Network Functions (“VNFs”) based on monitoring Key Performance Indicators (“KPIs”) associated with the VNFs. KPIs associated with a particular VNF or a set of VNFs may be monitored, and a failover event indicating service degradation or imminent service degradation may be detected based on the KPIs associated with the particular VNF or set of VNFs. Additional VNFs, associated with the particular VNF or set of VNFs, may be further identified for failover from a first data center to a second data center. The additional VNFs may be identified for failover without necessarily monitoring KPIs associated with the additional VNFs, and/or based on factors in addition to KPIs associated with the additional VNFs. For example, the additional VNFs may be failed over based on the KPIs associated with the particular VNF or set of VNFs.

  • Patent number: 11424979
    Abstract: Methods for one click monitors in impact time detection for noise reduction in at-scale monitoring are performed by systems and devices. The methods automatically configure time window sizes and numbers of consecutive time windows for optimally detecting system alerts in at-scale systems and per dimension combinations, including updating settings over time to adapt to changing system behaviors. The past behavior of system performance metrics are analyzed to match configuration options and determine a best fitting or optimal combination of a highest detection accuracy in lowest time to detect for alerting. Optimal monitoring configurations are determined for each of up to hundreds of thousands of the metric dimensions across the system, and an end user is enabled to apply the determined, optimal configurations for system monitoring with a single selection.

  • Patent number: 11418392
    Abstract: A method of managing a configuration of a computer network system includes creating of an instance of a server by a user through an interface of a public cloud service. A management process detects the existence of the instance by regularly polling the cloud service for infrastructure data and analyzing the infrastructure data to determine that the newly created instance exists. The method also includes testing parameters of the server indicated in the infrastructure data, which parameters are fully determined by the request, against predefined one or more infrastructure policies, whereby the parameters are available and testable against the policies during the generating, but are tested after the request is enacted to create the instance without creating policy enforcement encumbrance on the user when the user creates the new instance of the server.

  • Patent number: 11411816
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for managing a user device in multiple management modes. In an example, an agent executing on the user device can enroll the user device with a Unified Endpoint Management (“UEM”) system in a limited management mode. The agent can receive and install a first configuration profile from a server that configures the agent to operate on an unmanaged channel of the user device. In one example, the user device can have a third-party management client that manages the user device on a managed channel. The third-party management client can be removed. The agent can enroll the user device with the UEM in a full management mode. The agent can receive and install a second configuration profile that configures the agent to operate on the managed channel of the user device.

  • Patent number: 11397632
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing nodes that have lost contact with a control plane are disclosed. A first node among a plurality of nodes may use a polling process to monitor for a polling signal response from a control plane at periodic intervals, wherein the polling signal response indicates a health status of the first node as healthy. In response to not receiving the polling signal response for a threshold number of consecutive intervals, the first node may identify a subset of peer nodes among the plurality of nodes and instruct each peer node in the subset to inquire as to the health status of the first node from the control plane. The first node may perform an action based on a response received from each of the subset of peer nodes after inquiring as to the health status of the first node from the control plane.

  • Patent number: 11354158
    Abstract: Novel techniques are described for platooning of computational resources in automated vehicle networks. An on-board computational processor of an automated vehicle typically performs a large number of computational tasks, and some of those computational tasks can be computationally intensive. Some such tasks, referred to as platoonable tasks herein, are well-suited for parallel processing by multiple processors. Embodiments can detect one or more on-board computational processors in one or more automated vehicles that are likely, during the time window in which the platoonable task will be executed, to have available computational resources and to be traveling along respective paths that are close enough to each other to allow for ad hoc network communications to be established between the processors. In response to detecting such cases, embodiments can schedule and instruct shared execution of the platoonable tasks by the multiple processors via the ad hoc network.
