  • Patent number: 10892998
    Abstract: Customers of shared resources in a multi-tenant environment can have token buckets allocated that have an associated depth and fill rate, with each token enabling the customer to obtain an amount of work from a shared resource. A resource management system can monitor one or more system or output metrics, and can adjust a global fill rate based at least in part upon values of the monitored metrics. Such an approach can provide a fair distribution of work among the customers, while ensuring that the metrics stay within acceptable ranges and there are no drastic changes in performance levels of the system. The fill rate can update dynamically with changes in the monitored parameters, such that the system can float near an equilibrium point. Commitments for specific minimum service levels also can be met.

  • Patent number: 10878418
    Abstract: A payment reader and a POS terminal may communicate over a wireless connection. The methods and systems include receiving, from POS terminal, a request for establishing a network connection with the payment card reader. The server determines whether the payment card reader is associated with the POS terminal or a payment application thereon. If the payment card reader is not associated with the POS terminal or the payment application thereon, the server determines the probability of the request being fraudulent.

  • Patent number: 10855614
    Abstract: Commitments against various resources can be dynamically adjusted for customers in a shared-resource environment. A customer can provision a data volume with a committed rate of Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and pay only for that commitment (plus any overage), for example, as well as the amount of storage requested. The customer can subsequently adjust the committed rate of IOPS by submitting an appropriate request, or the rate can be adjusted automatically based on any of a number of criteria. Data volumes for the customer can be migrated, split, or combined in order to provide the adjusted rate. The interaction of the customer with the data volume does not need to change, independent of adjustments in rate or changes in the data volume, other than the rate at which requests are processed.

  • Patent number: 10827061
    Abstract: One example method of operation may include identifying call data associated with a received call, identifying call parameters from the call data, and the call parameters include one or more call routing parameters associated with call routing of the call and one or more call session parameters associated with a call session of the call, assigning weights to one or more of the call routing parameters and the call session parameters, determining a scam score for the call based on a sum of the weights applied to the call routing parameters and the call session parameters, and blocking the call when the scam score is greater than or equal to a predetermined threshold scam score.

  • Patent number: 10805459
    Abstract: One example method of operation may include receiving one or more data messages, identifying calls and corresponding call data from the one or more messages, identifying call parameters from the call data, applying a call activity filter criteria to the call parameters to identify a suspect sub-set of the call parameters which indicate an elevated likelihood of call scam, forwarding the call parameters and the suspect sub-set of call parameters to one or more call data tables, and assigning one or more scam designation threshold scores to the suspect sub-set of the call parameters in the one or more call data tables.

  • Patent number: 10803461
    Abstract: A payment reader and a POS terminal may communicate over a wireless connection. An original state of the payment reader can be used to determine a behavioral model, wherein the behavioral model defines an expected behavior of the payment entity. The system and method include detecting a change in the original state of the payment entity, wherein the change in the original state is triggered by another payment entity not authorized by the merchant; comparing the change of the original state with a threshold deviation defined by the behavioral model; and if the change of state is not within the threshold deviation, performing one or more actions to revert the payment entity to the original state.

  • Patent number: 10776395
    Abstract: A system that implements a scalable data storage service may maintain tables in a non-relational data store on behalf of clients. The system may provide a Web services interface through which service requests are received, and an API usable to request that a table be created, deleted, or described; that an item be stored, retrieved, deleted, or its attributes modified; or that a table be queried (or scanned) with filtered items and/or their attributes returned. An asynchronous workflow may be invoked to create or delete a table. Items stored in tables may be partitioned and indexed using a simple or composite primary key. The system may not impose pre-defined limits on table size, and may employ a flexible schema. The service may provide a best-effort or committed throughput model. The system may automatically scale and/or re-partition tables in response to detecting workload changes, node failures, or other conditions or anomalies.

  • Patent number: 10746414
    Abstract: A furnace may include a furnace cabinet, an inducer blower, and a flue vent adapter. The furnace is configured as a multi-poise furnace and configured to be installed and operated in each of the horizontal left flow orientation, the horizontal right flow orientation, the upflow orientation, and the downflow orientation. The flue vent adapter is used when the furnace is installed and operated in the downflow orientation. Alternatively, the flue vent adapter is used when the furnace is installed and operated in each of the horizontal left flow orientation and the horizontal right flow orientation. The flue vent adapter has a unitary construction to reduce manufacturing costs, reduce a pressure drop through the flue vent adapter, and reduce leakage.

  • Publication number: 20200192531
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods are disclosed for automatically generating and displaying a chronology of events, where events may be represented by data objects in one or more databases. Events/data objects may be identified as relevant to an investigation or analysis based on specified criteria. A timeline may be generated based on the identified set of relevant events, and interactive user interfaces may be generated and displayed that present the events as a timeline and a list. Events may be selected from the timeline or the list, may be identified as key events in the chronology, and additional events related to a selected event may be determined and added to the chronology. Timelines may be compared to other data sets, including other timelines, other event lists, and other relevant data.
