  • Patent number: 11368476
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to data management. A computer system may evaluate network traffic to extract and group data objects based on their content satisfying similarity criteria, and to identify baseline behavior with respect to those data objects. The computer system may generate data-defined network (DDN) data structures that include a content class and one or more behavioral classes. The content class may be indicative of one or more of the data objects that have been grouped based on them satisfying the similarity criteria. The one or more behavioral classes may indicate baseline behavior of those data objects within the content class as determined from evaluation of the network traffic. The computer system may detect, using the DDN data structures, anomalous data behavior within network traffic. In response to detecting anomalous data behavior, the computer system may prevent network traffic corresponding to the anomalous data behavior from being communicated.

  • Patent number: 11349761
    Abstract: A cost effective congestion isolation for lossless Ethernet utilizing random selection is provided. Upon detecting congestion at one of its egress ports, a downstream device randomly selects a data packet received at one or more of its ingress ports for isolation in a congested priority queue at the ingress port. The downstream device sends a congestion isolation message, including a list of isolation hashes to an upstream device to identify data packets selected for isolation. Upon receipt, the upstream device identifies data packets selected for isolation and begins to queue such packets in a congested priority queue of the upstream device. When priority-based flow control is triggered, the upstream device ceases transmission of packets in the congested priority queue only, while allowing continued transmission of non-isolated data packets.

  • Patent number: 11336551
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for identification and characterization of latency in a content delivery network. In one embodiment, interaction of users with content is recorded via collection of tuning records; the latency is then utilized to adjust the timing on the tuning records to account for lapses in time for sending these between entities of the network and the user devices, and for processing occurring at the devices. The latency is determined by taking into account a device specific latency component, and a network latency component. The network latency component is determined in one variant by sending a message to the device from the network requesting a response. Once the timing of the tuning records is adjusted, these tuning records may be relied upon as being accurate on a second-by-second basis. Accordingly, tuning records may be obtained and analyzed for content which lasts for a very short period of time.

  • Patent number: 11330472
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide for the pseudo-cooperative load balancing and/or distribution of traffic and/or other types of data by independent nodes. Techniques described herein may be considered “pseudo-cooperative” in that the resulting distribution of traffic and/or other data may resemble load balancing techniques in which various nodes, that serve as an ingress for data for distribution and/or other types of processing, communicate with each other (e.g., share context information) in order to perform load balancing in a coordinated or cooperative manner. In contrast, nodes in accordance with some embodiments described herein may perform load balancing with the same or similar results (e.g., a relatively even distribution of traffic and/or other data), without communicating with each other, thus saving time, processing resources, and/or other resources.
