  • Publication number: 20200382529
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to monitoring network traffic using network monitoring computers (NMCs). NMCs may determine requests provided to a server based on a first portion of network traffic. NMCs may determine suspicious requests based on characteristics of the provided requests. NMCs may employ the characteristics of the suspicious requests to provide correlation information that is associated with the suspicious requests. NMCs may determine dependent actions associated with the server based on a second portion of the network traffic and the correlation information. And, in response to determining anomalous activity associated with the evaluation of the dependent actions, NMCs may provide reports associated with the anomalous activity.

  • Patent number: 10836092
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a material strand assembly for a vehicle. The method includes: extruding strand material in an extruder so that an extruded material strand is produced; monitoring the quality of the extruded material strand so as to detect faults of the extruded material strand; in case of a detection of a fault, cutting out the fault from the material strand and re-joining cutting end faces, thus producing a joint, so that a faultless material strand is produced. The cutting-out step is conducted such that any two adjacent joints are at a minimum joint distance from each other. The faultless material strand is stored in a storage unit so as to produce the material strand assembly. The extruded material strand is passed through a first strand accumulator between the extruder and the cutting arrangement and through a second strand accumulator between the cutting arrangement and the storage unit.
