  • Publication number: 20110029621
    Abstract: A mail server system includes a congestion control management section managing a congestion control over the mail server system, a congestion statistical information collection section collecting the congestion statistical information of each mail server, and a resend queue having enough capacity, wherein a retry server for performing a retry process is provided. The congestion control management section detects the mail server where a fault occurs from the collected congestion statistical information and gives an instruction of regulating the sending of a mail directed to the faulty mail server to each mail server. The mail server instructed the regulating the sending of the mail directed to the faulty mail server transfers all the mails directed to that destination to the retry server, and transfers the received mail directed to the faulty mail server to the retry server until there is a regulation dissolution instruction from the congestion control management section.

  • Publication number: 20110010588
    Abstract: In a large-scale mail system such as that of a mobile phone carrier, in case that a mail gateway has encountered a fault due to a fault-inducing mail in arrival thereat, the mail gateway identifies the cause of the fault to prevent the recurrence thereof. The mail gateway is configured to include a mail relaying process used for relaying mails and a monitoring process used for supervising other processes. On occurrence of a fault due to a fault-inducing mail received by the mail relaying process, the monitoring process detects the fault-inducing mail that has cause the fault, the characteristics of the fault-inducing mail and the conditions of the fault, and then records information thus detected into a fault-inducing mail information table. After recovery from the fault under control of the monitoring process, the mail relaying process receives a new arriving mail.

  • Publication number: 20100306329
    Abstract: To solve the problem with mobile phone carriers that increasing mail traffic increases storage capacity of a mail server and network load, a relay server which relays a mail transfer (SMTP communication) and a mail fetch (IMAP communication) is installed in a carrier facility network. The relay server compresses a mail including a header transferred from a mail transfer server, adds a new header to encapsulate the mail, and transmits the encapsulated mail to an IMAP server as a compressed mail. In response to a mail fetch request from a communication terminal, the relay server decapsulates and restores the compressed mail fetched from the IMAP server, and transmits the restored mail to the communication terminal. The relay server changes parameters such as the mail size, so that no inconsistency of IMAP commands occurs in compressing/restoring the mail.

  • Publication number: 20100182909
    Abstract: A congestion control system is provided between a terminal and a server device to avoid a congestion state in the server device by preferentially regulating the request with a high load on the server device. The congestion control system estimates the load of the request from the terminal to be placed on the server device for the next communication sequence, based on the response from the server device to the request from the terminal, and adds the estimated load information to the response to the terminal. Subsequently, the request from the terminal includes the load information, so that the congestion control system controls the regulation of the request from the terminal based on the load information included in the request.

  • Publication number: 20100167866
    Abstract: An automatic transmission in which first to third clutches which can couple an input shaft to a first element of a first multiple planetary gear set and second and fourth elements of the second multiple planetary gear set, respectively, are arranged on a front side of the first multiple planetary gear set. Thus, it is possible to prevent a situation in which disengaging of the third clutch in the first speed causes the fourth element of the first multiple planetary gear set to rotate in reverse and generate a large relative rotation with the first element.

  • Patent number: 7585243
    Abstract: The present invention provides an automatic transmission having a main bearing disposed between the inner surface of a boss portion of a first drum and the outer surface of a cylindrical support, for rotatably supporting the first drum. An auxiliary bearing is press-fit into one end of the interior of the boss portion of the first drum and surrounds the cylindrical support with an annular gap therebetween. The auxiliary bearing contacts the cylindrical support only when the first drum tilts relative to the central axis of the transmission, and has a shorter axial length than that of the main bearing.

  • Publication number: 20080263213
    Abstract: Relaying devices to share workload among them are disposed in the carrier equipment network. The relaying devices respectively relay an HTTP message between the mobile phone and the web server and store an upload data from the mobile phone. The relaying devices respectively transmit to the mobile phone, before or immediately after uploading data, an address to couple the mobile phone to them and an identifier to specify an upload data. Where line disconnection has occurred between the mobile phone and the relaying device, the mobile phone resumes coupling to the address of the relaying device in question and transmits the identifier thereto. The relaying devices respectively search data corresponding to the identifier and transmit a data size as stored therein to the mobile phone. The mobile phone transmits data that the respective relaying devices have not stored to each of them.

  • Publication number: 20080046574
    Abstract: A communication system in which, even when an HTTP session is disconnected from a mobile device, the HTTP session can be continued or a response from a Web server can be returned to a user, without installing a special application in the mobile device. A load-distributable system is provided for realizing such operation. To that end, in a communication system having a relay device that relays a request from a portable telephone terminal (110) to a Web server (120), the relay device (130) relays a processing request from the portable telephone terminal (110) to the Web server, and stores a processing response from the Web server. The relay device (130) sends the portable telephone terminal a message to the effect that the processing response should be acquired from the relay device (130) or a message with the processing response added.

  • Patent number: 7232022
    Abstract: In a hydraulic servo for a clutch, a cancel plate is disposed on a second clutch drum that undergoes the same rotation as a second clutch drum provided with a cylinder portion, in such a fashion that the cancel plate is restricted from moving to a side opposite from a return spring in an axial direction. The first clutch drum is disposed, as a separate member, on the second clutch drum. A step portion of the second clutch drum prevents the first clutch drum from moving to a side opposite from the cancel plate. Due to the spring force of the return spring, the oil pressure in the cancel oil chamber and the oil pressure in the operating oil chamber, the force that presses the first clutch drum to the step portion is always greater than the force that presses the first clutch drum to the cancel plate side.

  • Publication number: 20060280392
    Abstract: A lubrication groove is formed on a sliding face of a bushing, both ends of which open to the same end face of the bushing. The lubrication groove has inclined portions that extend from the openings in directions that approach each other, and a parallel portion that is in communication with the ends of the inclined portions via curved portions. Oil is guided to the lubrication groove so as to form an oil film on the sliding face. Sealability is achieved because the lubrication groove only opens to one end face of the bushing.
