  • Publication number: 20160019088
    Abstract: According to one aspect of the present disclosure, a method and technique for mobility operation resource allocation is disclosed. The method includes: receiving a request to migrate a running application from a first machine to a second machine; displaying an adjustable resource allocation mobility setting interface indicating a plurality of mobility settings comprising at least one performance-based mobility setting and at least one concurrency-based mobility setting; receiving, via the interface, a selection of a mobility setting defining a resource allocation to utilize for the migration; and migrating the running application from the first machine to the second machine utilizing resources as set by the selected mobility setting.

  • Patent number: 9166865
    Abstract: According to one aspect of the present disclosure a system and technique for mobility operation resource allocation is disclosed. The system includes a first machine having a running application, and a management console operable to manage migrating the running application from the first machine to a second machine. The management console is operable to: display an interface indicating a plurality of selectable mobility settings, each mobility setting corresponding to a desired resource allocation to utilize for the migration; receive via the interface, a selection of a mobility setting to apply for migrating the running application; and initiate migration of the running application from the first machine to the second machine utilizing resources as set by the selected mobility setting.

  • Patent number: 8723915
    Abstract: An audio/video communication system displays the status of participants in a video chat session. The system includes multiple video chat capable (VCC) information handling systems (IHSs) that display video images of the participants. In this manner, each user may see the user's own video image as well as the video images of other users in the video chat session. When a user speaks, that user's VCC IHS detects audio, thus designating a speaker participant. This user's VCC IHS includes a gaze direction detector that determines at which particular user video image the user gazes, thus determining a target participant. The VCC IHS sends speaker participant ID information and target participant ID information to other VCC IHSs in the video chat session. In response, the other VCC IHSs display an indicator that designates one user video image as the speaker participant and another user video image as the target participant.
