  • Patent number: 9852011
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer program products, for managing resources in virtualization systems, including multi-cloud systems. The use of supply chain economics alone and in combination with other techniques offers a unified platform to integrate, optimize or improve, and automate resource management in a virtualization system. These techniques may be used to monitor and control the delivery of service level agreements and software licenses. They may also be used to monitor and control contention of computing resources in a virtualization system, and to suspend or terminate computing resources.

  • Patent number: 7817672
    Abstract: A device and a method for providing programs to multiple end user devices. The method includes: providing to multiple end user devices, via an edge device, at least one type of media stream out of unicast media stream and a multicast media stream; wherein the at least one type of media stream convey a group of programs; receiving a request from a first end user device to view a first program that belongs to the group of programs; and selectively switching, in response to bandwidth constraints imposed on a communication path coupled to the edge device, a type of a media stream that conveys the first program to a second end user device.

  • Patent number: 7783778
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for determining and identifying types of Virtual Private Networks is disclosed. The method comprises the steps of representing the network by a model containing a plurality of object classes, evaluating an import/export relationship of a first one and a second one of the object classes and identifying the network type based on the evaluated relationship.

  • Patent number: 7720003
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to a method and apparatus for the identification or discovery for properties of MPLS networks through a modeling technique. Aspects of the present invention provide for discovering or identifying the Label Switched Paths in MPLS networks. The method comprises the steps of representing a network by a model comprising a plurality of configuration non-specific first object classes that are representations of types of components associated with the network components, and a plurality of configuration non-specific second object classes that are representations of relationships among the representation of types of component, identifying instances of a first one and a second one of the types of components object class, and identifying the label switch path by traversing the instances of the first and second types of components object classes through select ones of the relationship object classes associated with the first and second type of components object classes.

  • Patent number: 7624167
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is disclosed for assigning a plurality agents associated with and monitoring devices to at least one manager in a distributed system, wherein the distributed system is arranged into a plurality of groups, each group associated with a manager, the method comprising the steps of identifying sets of agents wherein each set of agents includes at least one common association, assigning each of the sets of agents to at least one manager and, iteratively improving the assignment of each of the sets of agents until at least one desired criterion is substantially achieved. In one aspect, the sets of agents are continuously assigned until the total number of agents assigned to a manger is less than a predetermined number. In another aspect, the sets of agents are assigned until the total number of agent repetitions is less than a predetermined number.

  • Publication number: 20060095563
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for presenting or displaying operations associated with a network is disclosed. The method comprises the steps of selecting a path that allows communications between two selected nodes in the network, wherein the path consisting of a plurality of communication paths providing communication between communicatively adjacent nodes, determining parameters for animating the selected path; and highlighting, alternately, selected portions of the display of the selected path based on the determined parameters, wherein the alternate highlighting provides a visual indication of a direction of data flow in the selected path. In one aspect of the invention, the rate of alternate highlighting may further be selected to provide an indication of the status of corresponding communication paths.
