  • Publication number: 20230179486
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus related to network analysis are provided. A work topology is mapping into an abstract topology according to a workload's network behavior. The network behavior is defined by a connection of the workload via one or more ingress ports and/or one or more egress target ports. The work topology records one or more ingress ports or one or more egress target ports supported by the workload. The abstract topology records a dynamic relationship of the currently operating ingress port or egress target port of the workload and a corresponding anomaly rule. The dynamic relationship is compared with the anomaly rule to determine that an abnormal situation occurs on the workload. The abnormal situation is related to a violation of the workload model which comprises static role, dynamic relationship, and the anomaly rule. The dynamic relationship is an associated behavior between the workload and another workload via the ingress ports and/or the egress target ports of the workload.

  • Patent number: 11366247
    Abstract: A method may include transforming optical responses for a fluid sample to a parameter space of a downhole tool. The optical responses are obtained using a first operational sensor and a second operational sensor of the downhole tool. Fluid models are applied in the parameter space of the downhole tool to the transformed optical responses to obtain density predictions of the fluid sample. The density predictions of the first operational sensor are matched to the density predictions of the second operational sensor based on optical parameters of the fluid models to obtain matched density predictions. A difference between the matched density predictions and measurements obtained from a densitometer is calculated, and a contamination index is estimated based on the difference.
