  • Patent number: 10289748
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for optimizing transmission of digital components. In one aspect a digital component distribution system performs operations including determining a minimum eligibility value required to maintain the eligibility of a given digital component based on a next highest eligibility value of one of the other digital components. Based on the next highest eligibility value, a baseline transmission value required to be submitted for distribution of the given digital component is determined. A normalized transmission value is determined based on the minimum eligibility value, and transmission of the given digital component to a client device presenting a particular electronic document is triggered based on the normalized transmission value.

  • Patent number: 10218619
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a device in a network identifies an upcoming network formation event. The device instructs one or more nodes in the network to use a network formation broadcast schedule during the event. The device determines that a degree of functionality in the network during the event exceeds a threshold amount. The device instructs the one or more nodes to use a normal broadcast schedule, in response to determining that the degree of functionality in the network during the event exceeds the threshold amount. Channels of the network formation broadcast schedule are active more frequently than channels of the normal broadcast schedule when in use.

  • Patent number: 10178202
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for relocation of applications to optimize resource utilization. A processor executing a relocation management application can receive a request to relocate an application. The processor can identify a utilization associated with the application, identify prospective host resources capable of hosting the application, determine utilizations associated with the prospective host resources, and project prospective host resource utilizations based upon the utilization associated with the application and the utilizations associated with the prospective host resources. The processor can select a prospective host resource from the prospective host resources by selecting a resource that offers a most consistent projected utilization.

  • Patent number: 10178061
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and computer system for sending, from a first computing device, an email digest in an email message to a second computing device at a first point in time, wherein the email digest includes one or more content items for display at the second computing device when the email digest in the email message is accessed. An action is determined to be performed on a content item of the one or more content items at a second point in time that is after the first point in time. The content item of the one or more content items in the email digest is filtered from the email message based upon, at least in part, determining that the action is performed on the content item of the one or more content items at the second point in time.

  • Patent number: 10148610
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer-readable medium are disclosed for using Zero Configuration Networking (ZeroConf) to automate the discovery of the Internet Protocol (IP) network address of a remote access controller (RAC). A RAC service associated with a networking device is registered programmatically or as a result of receiving user input to a command line interface. Available services that include the registered RAC service are browsed, followed by resolving the registered RAC service to an IP address, which is then discovered. The discovered IP address is then displayed within a user interface (UI) window.
