  • Patent number: 11921799
    Abstract: Operational machine components of an information technology (IT) or other microprocessor- or microcontroller-permeated environment generate disparate forms of machine data. Network connections are established between these components and processors of an automatic data intake and query system (DIQS). The DIQS conducts network transactions on a periodic and/or continuous basis with the machine components to receive the disparate data and ingest certain of the data as measurement entries of a DIQS metrics datastore that is searchable for DIQS query processing. The DIQS may receive search queries to process against the received and ingested data via an exposed network interface. In one example embodiment, a query building component conducts a user interface using a network attached client device. The query building component may elicit search criteria via the user interface using a natural language interface, construct a proper query therefrom, and present new information based on results returned from the DIQS.

  • Patent number: 11924299
    Abstract: Techniques for managing migrations of QUIC connection session(s) across proxy nodes, data centers, and/or private application nodes are described herein. A global key-value datastore, accessible by proxy nodes and/or application nodes, may store mappings between a first QUIC connection, associated with a proxy node and a client device, on the frontend of the proxy node and a second QUIC connection, associated with the proxy node and an application node, on the backend of the proxy node. With the global key-value datastore being accessible by the proxy nodes, when a proxy node receives a QUIC packet on the front end or the back end, the proxy node may determine where to map this connection to on the opposite end. Additionally, with the global key-value datastore being accessible to the application nodes, when an application node receives a QUIC packet, the application node may determine the client device associated with the connection.

  • Patent number: 11902106
    Abstract: A client-isolation internal/external fabric LCS provisioning system includes an orchestrator device coupled to a client device via an external fabric, and coupled to resource devices via an internal fabric that is not accessible to the client device via the external fabric. The orchestrator device configures the resource devices to communicate with each other in a manner that satisfies a workload intent for a workload requested by the client device, and presents an LCS provided using the configured resource devices to the client device via the external fabric. When the orchestrator device receives LCS communication(s) directed to the LCS from the client device via the external fabric, it provides instruction(s) to at least one of the resource devices via the internal fabric that are based on the LCS communication and that are configured to cause the at least one of the resource devices to perform function(s) for the LCS.

  • Patent number: 11888631
    Abstract: Techniques for providing a dynamic and modifiable sidebar of a user interface of a communication platform are discussed herein. The sidebar includes affordances of virtual spaces that are associated with a particular user account, such that a virtual space is accessible via a respective affordance. In examples, a section of the sidebar can be modifiable by the user, such as to enable the user to personalize the sidebar. The virtual spaces can include collaborative documents that are created and managed by the communication platform. In examples, the communication platform receives interaction data associated with an interaction of a first user with a collaborative document and identifies a second user associated with the collaborative document. Based in part on the interaction data, the communication platform causes a notification to be presented in a sidebar of user interface associated with the second user, to inform the second user of the update.

  • Patent number: 11855911
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing intent-based orchestration using network parsimony trees. In various embodiments, in response to receiving a request for network services that comprises desired characteristics and performance parameters for the requested network services without information regarding specific hardware, hardware type, location, or network, a computing system might generate a request-based parsimony tree based on the desired characteristics and performance parameters. The computing system might access, from a datastore, a plurality of network-based parsimony trees that are each generated based on measured network metrics, might compare the request-based parsimony tree with each of one or more network-based parsimony trees to determine a fitness score for each network-based parsimony tree, and might identify a best-fit network-based parsimony tree based on the fitness scores.
