  • Patent number: 11372662
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods, systems, and processes to perform granular and selective agent-based throttling of command executions. A resource consumption threshold is allocated to an agent process that is configured to perform data collection tasks on a host computing device. A desired throttle is generated for the agent process based on the resource consumption threshold allocated to the agent process and execution of the agent process is controlled in polling intervals. For each polling interval, a current throttle level for the agent process is determined based on a run count and a skip count of the agent process, the agent process is suspended if the agent process is active and the current throttle is greater than the desired throttle level, and the agent process is resumed if the agent process is idle and the current throttle level is not greater than the desired throttle level.

  • Patent number: 11366708
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices for managing predetermined functions on a mobile device within a moving vehicle, the mobile device having an operating system (OS) that includes an event API installed therein that is configured for two-way communication with an external control device, the control device being installed within the vehicle and further configured to communicate with a software application installed and running in memory resident on the mobile device. In response to initiation of a predetermined function on the mobile device, a notification message is transmitted by the event API to the control device. The control device then communicates with the software application to determine a desired action for the mobile device to take with respect to the predetermined function. The control device then instructs the mobile device on the action to take on the predetermined function by transmitting an action message to the event API.

  • Patent number: 11354138
    Abstract: Plugin loading can be optimized. A service can use a plugin loader to load plugins on a computing device. When the plugin loader loads plugins, the plugins can be configured to determine their load statuses and report such load statuses to the plugin loader. After receiving the load statuses, the plugin loader can store the load statuses and then notify the service to request a restart. When the service restarts the plugin loader, the plugin loader can use the load statuses to determine which of the plugins should be loaded. In this way, the service and plugin loader can ensure that only plugins that are appropriate for a particular computing device will remain loaded.

  • Patent number: 11347523
    Abstract: Techniques include executing a software program having a function call to a shared library and reloading the shared library without stopping execution of the software program. A global offset table (GOT) is updated responsive to resolving a link address associated with the function call. An entry in GOT included a link address field, an index field, and a resolved field, the updating including updating the index field with an affirmative value and marking the resolved field with an affirmative flag for the entry in the GOT. Responsive to reloading the shared library, the entry in the GOT is found having the affirmative value in the index field and the affirmative flag in the resolved field. An address value in the link address field is returned for the entry having the affirmative value in the index field, responsive to a subsequent execution of the function call to the shared library.

  • Patent number: 11340963
    Abstract: Aspects of the technology described herein improve the clarity of information provided in automatically generated notifications, such as reminders, tasks, alerts or other messages or communications provided to a user. The clarity may be improved through augmentations that provide additional information or specificity to the user. For example, instead of providing a notification reminding the user, “remember to send the slides before the meeting,” the user may be provided with a notification reminding the user “remember to send the updated sales presentation before the executive committee meeting on Tuesday. The augmentation may take several forms including substituting one word in the notification with another more specific word, adding additional content such as a word or phrase to the notification without altering the existing content, and/or by rephrasing the content for grammatical correctness and/or clarity.

  • Patent number: 11321159
    Abstract: Conflicts can be detected between server-side data and client-side data using interchangeable plugins. In one example, a system can receive an interchangeable plugin from among a group of interchangeable plugins for performing conflict detection between server-side data handled by a server and client-side data handled by a client device. Each interchangeable plugin can implement a particular conflict-detection strategy that is different than the other interchangeable plugins and can be selectively integratable into an application programming interface (API) through which the client device is to communicate with the server. The system can integrate the interchangeable plugin into the API to enable the API to implement the particular conflict-detection strategy defined by the interchangeable plugin. The system can then detect a conflict between the server-side data and the client-side data in accordance with the particular conflict-detection strategy defined by the interchangeable plugin.
