  • Patent number: 10958534
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for surfacing anomalous network activity on a user interface. An example method provides, for presentation on a user device, a user interface for analyzing network traffic from a customer network. The user interface is populated with network traffic data from the customer network for display to the user. An interactive first filter that is configurable for filtering network traffic based on prevalence of the destination domains of the network traffic is displayed to the user. A first user input configuring the first filter to a first prevalence value is received. In response, the network traffic data is filtered in the user interface to only include network traffic data that has a destination domain that is less prevalent than the first prevalence value.

  • Patent number: 10958559
    Abstract: In general, techniques are described by which to provide a scaled end-to-end view of link metrics to integrate multiple non-uniform Interior Gateway Protocol (“IGP”) domains. For example, an Accumulated Interior Gateway Protocol (“AIGP”) attribute, a non-transitive BGP attribute, which includes a link metric assigned to a link within a first IGP domain, is scaled to conform to a metric scale of the second IGP domain. The AIGP attribute may also add link metric assigned to a link within the second IGP domain and may add static metrics of non-IGP links connecting the IGP domains. An IGP domain may set its IGP to the scaled AIGP attribute such that the link metric may include a uniformly scaled end-to-end view of link metrics across the IGP domains. Additionally, a sham-link is assigned a metric value in accordance with the scaling techniques.
