  • Patent number: 11106614
    Abstract: An ALUA path selection system includes a networking device in a networking fabric that couples a host device to a storage subsystem. The networking device receives a host device communication generated by the host device and retrieves a host device hop count that identifies a number of hops between the host device and the networking device. The networking device also receives a storage subsystem communication generated by the storage subsystem and retrieves a storage subsystem hop count that identifies a number of hops between the storage subsystem and the networking device. When the networking device receives a hop count request from the host device, it transmits the host device hop count and/or the storage subsystem hop count to the host device, and the host device uses the host device hop count and/or the storage subsystem hop count to select an active-optimized path to a LUN included in the storage subsystem.

  • Patent number: 11082329
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards lossless delivery of data when there are route changes, e.g., in an integrated access and backhaul (IAB) multi-hop relay network. When a route changes is to occur, the last unchanged node in a multiple hop route preserves the data (e.g., copies unacknowledged and unsent PDCP PDUs from the protocol stack corresponding to the radio link control layer of the failed relay hop, and populates a replacement protocol stack for the node in the new route with the preserved data. Also described is pre-emptive detection of link failure, which triggers a route change based on monitoring retransmissions to detect a deteriorating link, which can occur before complete link communication failure.

  • Patent number: 11063784
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an authoritative edge device (AED)-server in a computer network maintains assignment of an active AED for a particular virtual local area network (VLAN), and in response to a triggered re-assignment, sends an AED change request identifying an old active AED for the particular VLAN and a new active AED for the particular VLAN (e.g., and/or corresponding backups). In response to receiving the change request, the old active AED ceases forwarding of traffic for the particular VLAN and transmits a relinquishment confirmation into the network. Also, in response to receiving the change request and the relinquishment confirmation from the old active AED, the new active AED assumes responsibility for traffic forwarding for the particular VLAN and transmits an activation confirmation into the network. The change request is then deemed completed by the AED-sever upon receipt of both the relinquishment confirmation and the activation confirmation.

  • Patent number: 10791045
    Abstract: Virtual channel assignment in a network is achieved by constructing a Traffic Conflict Graph (TCG) dependent upon a network interconnect topology. The TCG has vertices corresponding to traffic entries in a network specification and edges that connect pairs of vertices. An edge weight, dependent upon interconnect topology and traffic flow characteristics, is assigned to each edge. The vertices are colored using minimum or soft coloring and the virtual channels are mapped to the traffic entries, according to the resulting colors, to provide a virtual channel assignment. The TCG may be constructed by generating a vertex in the TCG to represent each traffic entry, assigning a traffic flow characteristic of a traffic entry to a corresponding vertex and generating an edge between first and second vertices when a number of ‘qualified’ common edges, across all routes for corresponding traffic entries, is greater than zero.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing improved connection setup on networks is disclosed. At initial call setup, the system can choose between transmission control protocol (TCP) and user datagram protocol (UDP) based on current network conditions. When network conditions—e.g., signal strength and/or signal quality—are such that establishing the connection is likely to be unreliable, then the system can automatically choose TCP for improved reliability. When network conditions are good, on the other hand, then the system can automatically choose UDP for improved speed and efficiency. The system may also switch back and forth between TCP and UDP during use because of changing network conditions. This can reduce dropped connections, poor quality connections, dropped packets, and other errors.

In response to locating a matching TCP sequence number, extracting from the TCP sequence number hash table an associated stream identifier, and resuming fragmented re-assembly using the associated stream identifier, by extracting the matching HTTP2 stream identifier from a HTTP2 hash table, a HTTP2 buffer and the remaining message length. A new HTTP2 hash table entry is created when a matching entry is not found, indicating start of a new message. For each segment, data from the SSL/TLS segment is appended to the HTTP2 buffer until the complete HTTP2 message is re-assembled. The re-assembled HTTP2 response/request is sent to its destination, and the corresponding entries are deleted from the hash tables.

  • Patent number: 10721158
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a primary tunnel is established from a head-end node to a destination along a path including one or more protected network elements for which a fast reroute path is available to pass traffic around the one or more network elements in the event of their failure. A first path quality measures path quality prior to failure of the one or more protected network elements. A second path quality measures path quality subsequent to failure of the one or more protected network elements, while the fast reroute path is being used to pass traffic of the primary tunnel. A determination is made whether to reestablish the primary tunnel over a new path that does not include the one or more failed protected network elements, or to continue to utilize the path with the fast reroute path, in response to a difference between the first path quality and the second path quality.

  • Patent number: 10678693
    Abstract: A logic-executing ring buffer (LERB) is a ring buffer with integrated logic. A LERB includes a series of logical ring stages and corresponding ring entries mapped to each other using an indirection table. A LERB can include control logic and stage functions that execute in association with each ring stage. The LERB advances by updating the indirection table (e.g., to map an associated ring entry with a subsequent ring stage, optionally based on pinning logic) and/or by passing data from one ring stage to the next. As such, ring stages can store transient data that gets passed between ring stages, ring entries store persistent data that does not move, and mappings are updated by LERB control logic and/or stage functions. As such, a LERB is a flexible data structure that provides expanded functionality and improved memory management for many applications.
