  • Patent number: 10503545
    Abstract: A universal security agent deployed on a computing endpoint includes one or both of a base agent and a security agent plugin module. The base agent loads the security agent plugin module and, in response, receives plugin tasks from the security agent plugin module for registration. The base agent schedules the received plugin tasks based on a policy and/or a system access information associated with the security agent plugin module. Further, the base agent executes the plugin tasks based on the scheduling. The base agent controls system access requests generated during the execution of the plugin tasks based on the policy associated with the security agent plugin module. Additionally, the base agent monitors and logs system access information associated with the security agent plugin module.

  • Publication number: 20190235959
    Abstract: Disclosed is a computer-implemented method in a storage controller of changing a preferred node from a first node to a second node, comprising: receiving a notification of a request to remove the first node; reporting ports on the first node as non-preferred instead of reporting them as preferred; reporting ports on the second node as preferred instead of reporting them as non-preferred; compiling a target port groups report for each of the first node and the second node; and raising an asymmetric access state changed unit attention notification.

  • Patent number: 10310750
    Abstract: A storage area network comprises: one or more replicating source and target storage volumes accessible by one or more hosts; a volume replication status checker for determining an active replication relationship between a source storage volume and a target storage volume; and a volume visibility engine for setting the target storage volume to be hidden from a host if the target storage volume is visible to the host and has a determined active relationship. The volume replication status checker is further for determining an inactive replication relationship between a source storage volume and a target storage volume; and the volume visibility engine is further for setting the target storage volume to be visible to a host if the target storage volume is hidden from the host and has a determined inactive replication relationship.

  • Patent number: 10296216
    Abstract: Executing connections from a data processing system to a storage controller using ports specified in a TPG report. The storage controller receives a RTPG SCSI request from the data processing system via a FC fabric. The storage controller determines whether NPIV is enabled on the storage controller and, if so, the storage controller modifies the TPG report to include one or more dedicated N-Ports and one or more multi-purpose N-Ports, where AAS bits of a dedicated N-Port descriptor associated with the dedicated N-Ports are set as Active/optimized. The storage controller sends the modified TPG report to the data processing system. The storage controller then processes an access request received from the data processing system where the access request is received on one of the one or more dedicated N-Ports and the one or more multi-purpose N-Ports according to the TPG report and a device type of the data processing system.

  • Patent number: 8054171
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for allowing a troubleshooter to reuse existing indicators, such as displays, LEDs, or specialized indicators, for a purpose other than the indicator's usual purpose. In response to an initial occurrence of a problem, the troubleshooter modifies the indicator's behavior to indicate a later occurrence of a fault or a set of faults, which may be the cause of the problem. Upon the later occurrence of the problem, the indicator is monitored for simultaneous notification of occurrence of the fault. After the problem is triaged, the modified indicator is returned to its original use. The notification from the indicator can be sensory, i.e., auditory, visible, or tactile. The indicator's change in behavior can occur after the fault happens once or an administrable threshold number of times, or intermittently. Alternatively, the change in behavior may become semi-permanent if the fault continues to occur for some administrable number of times.

  • Publication number: 20100305777
    Abstract: In an axial-flow cylindrical preparative chromatography column that utilizes a piston to close off the top of the resin space inside the column and thereby eliminate void spaces at the top of the resin, one or more proximity detectors are incorporated in the piston head to either generate a signal indicating the proximity of the piston had to the resin, or to collect a signal, such as a optical signal, emitted from the resin. The value of the signal or any change in the signal is compared to a threshold value to ascertain when the piston head is in proximity to the resin so that the motion of the piston toward the resin can be halted before contact pressure from the piston head damages the resin.
