  • Patent number: 10263857
    Abstract: Source policy identification information of a registry service policy is captured. The source policy identification information includes a source policy identifier (ID), a source policy name, and a source policy uniform resource locator (URL). The captured source policy identification information is correlated with configured policy enforcement processing rules and processing actions using a source policy reference key. Per-transaction service policy enforcement information that documents policy enforcement activities performed by a policy enforcement point (PEP) is captured. The captured per-transaction service policy enforcement information is correlated with the captured source policy identification information using the source policy reference key.

  • Patent number: 10165071
    Abstract: This document describes systems, methods, devices, and other techniques for monitoring the performance of activities executed at a computing device. In some implementations, a computing device receives a user input to invoke performance of an activity by the computing device. Multiple portions of computer code associated with the activity can be identified. For each portion of computer code, (i) the respective portion of computer code can be executed, and (ii) data can be recorded about the executing of the respective portion of computer code that indicates a time duration of the executing of the respective portion of computer code. A total time to completion of the activity can be provided based at least in part on aggregating the recorded data about the executing of the multiple portions of computer code.

  • Patent number: 10084721
    Abstract: A cloud computing system includes services that provide virtual cloud computing resources. The service publishes service events that are transformed into periodic rating data as per centralized, pluggable, service-specific business rules. The cloud computing system includes a metering service that reduces network traffic for billing using a carry-forward mechanism that remembers a last-known rating state. Anomalies in the last-known state, such as, from lost or duplicate service events, can be detected via a reconciliation protocol between the metering service and cloud computing services.

  • Patent number: 10070165
    Abstract: A system and method for determining entitlement to content residing on a server. A subscriber account with a multi-channel video program distributor (MVPD) includes subscription information indicative of the services provided by the MVPD to the subscriber. A computing device operated by the subscriber sends a request for access to content controlled by the MVPD. The request is received by the MVPD and forwarded to an entitlements server. The entitlement server sends an access granted message to the MVPD when the subscriber is entitled to receive the requested content. The IP address of the subscriber computing device is used to determine whether the computing device is connected to the network via a network access device authorized by the MVPD. The “on-net” or “off-net” status of the computing device may be used to determine whether the subscriber receives the requested content and/or a quality of service level applied to the content.

  • Patent number: 9979685
    Abstract: A messaging application filters electronic messages based on domain attributes without a reputation. A message with a uniform resource identifier (URI) is received and determined to not be included within a trusted or a block list. A total score is computed from weighted scores assigned to factors associated with the message. The message is evaluated for an unsolicited message determination by comparing the total score against a predetermined threshold.

  • Patent number: 9974108
    Abstract: A method of identifying an external device that sent a message and then determining whether to process the message based in part on the identity of the external device that sent the message. The implanted device receives a message from the external device and identifies an external device ID in the received message. The external device ID identifies the external device that sent the message. The implanted device then compares the external device ID from the message to a stored list of approved external device IDs. The implanted device processes the message when the external device ID matches one or the approved external device IDs in the stored list of approved external device IDs. However, the message is disregarded when the external device ID does not match any of the approved external device IDs in the stored list of approved external device IDs.

  • Patent number: 9965332
    Abstract: A provisioning machine may receive a request that an application be executed while distributed according to a distribution constraint among various devices. The provisioning machine may access a topological model that represents multiple devices configured as a single cloud-based application server and defines a first group of devices that have the same redundancy status (e.g., active or backup). In addition, the topological model may define a second group of devices that have the same functional role (e.g., executing a particular component of the application). A device may be a member of both the first group and the second group. The provisioning machine may determine a size of the first group according to the distribution constraint. Based on the determined size of the first group, the provisioning machine may configure (e.g., provision) the first group of devices as a subset of the multiple devices of the server.

  • Patent number: 9967223
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a framework for pushing service notifications to users via selected channels that are chosen based on user history. In accordance with one aspect, the framework determines if a notification is to be sent to a particular user. The framework may further determine if the notification requires an action. If the notification requires no action, the framework may choose, from multiple channels, a channel with lowest receive time duration. The framework may then send the notification via the chosen channel.
