  • Publication number: 20220103367
    Abstract: Each index value and primary data for generating the index value are stored in a block of a blockchain. The primary data is received from a set of data sources, each associated with one or more index components of the index. Based on the received primary data, the index value is generated. A cryptographic hash value is generated based on the received primary data, the generated index value, and a previous hash value corresponding to a previous time period. The generated index value, the received primary data, and the generated cryptographic hash value are stored in a new block of the blockchain.

  • Patent number: 10110460
    Abstract: Example embodiments relate to work conserving bandwidth guarantees using priority, and a method for determining VM-to-VM bandwidth guarantees between a source virtual machine (VM) and at least one destination VM, including a particular VM-toVM bandwidth guarantee between the source VM and a particular destination VM. The method includes monitoring outbound network traffic flow from the source VM to the particular destination VM. The method includes comparing the outbound network traffic flow to the particular VM-to-VM bandwidth guarantee. When the outbound network traffic flow is less than the particular VM-to-VM bandwidth guarantee, packets of the flow are directed according to a first priority. When the outbound network traffic flow is greater than the particular VM-to-VM bandwidth guarantee, packets of the flow are directed according to a second priority.

  • Patent number: 9813328
    Abstract: Selected ones of multiple groups of network entities are assigned to corresponding routing structures, where each of the routing structures defines a set of paths through a network among network entities of a corresponding one of the groups. The assigning considers available multicast resources in communication nodes in the network, and a criterion relating to reducing overall cost in the assignment of the selected groups to the corresponding routing structures.

  • Patent number: 9794185
    Abstract: According to an example, a method for bandwidth guarantee and work conservation includes determining virtual machine (VM) bandwidth guarantees assigned to VMs in a network including a source VM that communicates with destination VMs. The method further includes assigning minimum bandwidth guarantees to communications between the source VM with the destination VMs by dividing a VM bandwidth guarantee assigned to the source VM between the destination VMs based on active VM-to-VM communications between the source VM and the destination VMs. The method also includes allocating, by a processor, spare bandwidth capacity in the network to a communication between the source VM and a destination VM based on the assigned minimum bandwidth guarantees.

  • Patent number: 9420513
    Abstract: A clustering-based method of estimating a network metric between a first node and a second node includes determining source clusters of nodes and destination clusters of nodes for each node. Cluster heads are selected for each cluster. Measurements of the network metric between each node and each cluster head for the source clusters and destination clusters are performed, and the network metric for a pair of nodes is estimated based on the measurements for the pair of nodes.
