  • Patent number: 11451509
    Abstract: A data transmission method includes determining that a first network address segment overlaps with a second network address segment, and creating at least two subnets on a virtual private cloud (VPC). The first network address segment is a network address segment of a subnet in which a target server is located, and configured to run on the VPC. The first network address segment belongs to a network address segment of the VPC. The second network address segment is a network address segment of a subnet in which a first electronic device is located. A network address segment of one of the at least two subnets on the VPC does not overlap with the first or second network address segment. Network interfaces in the at least two subnets are configured to sequentially forward a data packet being transmitted between the target server and the first electronic device at least two times.

  • Patent number: 11449782
    Abstract: Database queries are processed by a first client storing cached data. The first client and a second client host a probabilistic model yielding validity values associating with the cached data indicating a probability that the cached data stored coincides with corresponding original data. The first client randomly selects queries at the time the respective query is received from one of the plurality of clients. For each of the queries randomly selected, a first piece of the cached data stored at the first client and matching the randomly selected query is retrieved, and a first piece of the original data matching the randomly selected query from the at least one original data source is retrieved. The probabilistic model is adapted using a machine learning algorithm based on the retrieved first piece of the cached data and the retrieved first piece of the original data and made available to the second client.

  • Patent number: 11451608
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein may relate to systems and methods for managing work flow data collection for users across a wide area network comprising a diverse set of devices and processes and unifying the work process to be device agnostic. Embodiments disclosed herein may allow a single process having multiple steps to be retrieved and continued across multiple channels and devices with apparent continuity to the end-user. The status of each process step is tracked and the inputs are stored, providing the system with the requisite information when users continue processes on a different channel or device from the original channel or device. The system may host and execute processes that may be presented and manipulated across the various channels and devices, but without requiring engineers and developers to write or otherwise tailor software applications and network configurations to facilitate or allow multi-channel interactions.

  • Patent number: 11349763
    Abstract: In a storage system in which a storage array accesses cloud storage via a cloud gateway, the cloud gateway provides signals to control data rate between the storage array and the cloud. The signals may include commands to reduce or stop all volume streams or a select subset of volume streams. Data rate may be controlled on the basis of available buffering capacity of the cloud gateway and available bandwidth between the cloud gateway and cloud storage. The signals may be SCSI VU commands, where the cloud gateway is a SCSI initiator and the storage array is a SCSI target.

  • Patent number: 11316742
    Abstract: A method for managing a resource configuration of a heterogeneously managed computer system. During processing of a resource management request, retrieving a set of resource tags are retrieved. Each resource tag associates a local resource identifier that is assigned within a first configuration management domain with an index identifier that is assigned within a second configuration management naming domain. The retrieved tags are mutually associated utilizing the index identifiers to generating a system configuration map. The resource management request is compared with the system configuration map to identify target resources and corresponding target resource information. One or more resource queries are generated based on the identified target resource and corresponding target resource information.

  • Patent number: 11297139
    Abstract: In one aspect, a server in a data processing system stores database records in association with schema information identifying the particular schema by which the stored records are structured. Storing the schema information advantageously enables the node to provide schema information in association with requested records, enabling clients to determine the schema(s) associated with requested records. As a further advantage, the server in one or more embodiments operates as a central repository of schema definitions. Consequently, any given client requesting a record of a given record type can retrieve the schema used for structuring that record and translate the received record into the schema used by the requesting node for records of that type. Thus, disparate types of clients, or clients running different software versions, may use a central repository of data records of a given type, even where the clients use different schemas for processing such records.

  • Patent number: 11290520
    Abstract: A first set of blocks is caused, by a first computer system, to be downloaded from a file located on a second computer system. A second set of blocks to download from the file is identified, based at least in part on the first set of blocks. A subset of the second set of blocks that are not in a cache of the first computer system are determined. For each determined block in the subset, an available thread is assigned from a thread pool to the determined block, the available thread is caused to download, in concurrence with blocks being downloaded by threads assigned to other determined blocks of the subset, the determined block from a second computer system into the cache of the first computer system.

  • Patent number: 11283754
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for determining unique identities of endpoints across L3 networks. For example, a first networking device of a network management system in a first L3 network can receive a mapping of a first L3 network address to a first L2 network address from a second networking device in a second L3 network. The system can determine that the first L2 network address is associated with a third networking device. The system can receive a mapping of the L3 address to a second L2 network address from the third device. The system can determine that the second L2 address is associated with an endpoint. The system can store the L3 address and the second L2 address as an identity of the endpoint. The system can present network utilization information of the endpoint using traffic to/from the L3 address correlated to the endpoint based on its identity.

  • Patent number: 11223669
    Abstract: A service request for communication services for communication clients is received. In response, a communication service network is set up to support the communication services. Routing metadata is generated for each of the communication clients. The routing metadata is to be used by each of the communication clients for sharing service quality information with a respective peer communication client over a light-weight peer-to-peer (P2P) network. The routing metadata is downloaded to each of the communication clients. A communication client may exchange service signaling packets or service data packets over the communication service network. When the communication client determines that there is a problematic region in a bitstream received from the communication server, the communication client can request a peer communication client for a service quality information portion related to the problematic region.
