  • Publication number: 20030236745
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing differentiated service that may be employed, for example, to deliver content or services in a network environment. Differentiated services that may be so delivered include both differentiated information service that may be implemented, for example, at the system and/or processing level, as well as differentiated business service that may be implemented, for example, to differentiate information exchange between different network entities such as different network provider entities, different network user entities, etc. The methods and systems may include or facilitate provisioning of system service parameters such as service level agreement (“SLA”) policies and may be employed in network computing system environments to enable differentiated service provisioning, for example, in accordance with business objectives.

  • Publication number: 20030097481
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for an improved TCP/UDP checksum method. The checksum methods described herein may be characterized as utilizing the system data movement engine, such as a direct memory access (DMA) engine, as part of the checksum process. The checksum process may be incorporated within the prescribed interface mechanisms utilized to move data across an interconnection medium. In this manner a TCP/UDP checksum process has been provided in which checksum generation is incorporated within the data movement engine utilized with a high speed interconnect medium (for example a switch fabric). Moreover, the checksum process may be split up and different operations performed at different steps of the packet transmission process. Thus, portions of the checksum process may be performed on either side of the interconnect medium during the transmission process.

  • Publication number: 20030046396
    Abstract: Resource usage accounting may be implemented in information management environments using resource utilization values. Resource usage accounting may be employed, for example, to make possible run-time enforcement of system operations on one or more subsystems or processing engines of an information management system, such as a content delivery system, for example, to advantageously provide intelligent admission control in a distributed environment. In one embodiment, resource usage accounting may be implemented to make possible the management of system resources on a per subsystem or processing engine basis, for example, based on at least two types of resource utilization indicative information: 1) resource usage that has been tracked internally throughout the life span of the overload and policy finite state machine module; and 2) resource status messages received directly or indirectly from one or more subsystems or processing engines.

  • Publication number: 20020133593
    Abstract: A method and system for the deterministic management of information that may be employed, for example, to deliver content or services in a network environment. The method may include identifying and verifying the availability of system resources required to process a request for content or services before accepting the request. The available required resources may be reserved in conjunction with accepting a request to ensure that the request is efficiently processed. The system may be divided into a plurality of monitored and distributively interconnected subsystems, each interacting with the others in a deterministic manner so as to allow a system monitor to oversee and manage resource availability and increase efficiency of processing the request.

  • Publication number: 20020120741
    Abstract: A distributed interconnect may be employed in information management environments to distribute functionality, for example, among processing engines of an information management system and/or processing modules thereof. Distributive interconnects such as switch fabrics and virtual distributed interconnect backplanes, may be employed to establish independent paths from node to node and thus may be used to facilitate parallel and independent operation of each processing engine of a multi-processing engine information management system, e.g. to provide peer-to-peer communication between the engines on an as-needed basis. These and other features of distributed interconnects may be advantageously employed to optimize information management systems operations in a variety of system configurations.

  • Publication number: 20020107903
    Abstract: A multi-processor network processing environment is provided in which parallel processing may occur. In one embodiment, a network processor having multiple processor cores may be utilized. Parallel processing at the front end of the network processor is encouraged while still maintaining ordered serialization between the input and the output of the network processor. The disclosed order serialization techniques obtain the benefits of parallel processing at the front end of the system while minimizing blocking times at the output.

  • Publication number: 20020107971
    Abstract: A network endpoint system receives requests delivered in packet format via a network. The system uses a transport accelerator at its front end, which performs all or some of the network protocol processing. The transport accelerator is directly connected to one or more processing units, which respond to the requests. The protocol processing may be partitioned between the transport accelerator and the processing units in a manner that best uses their different processing capabilities.
