  • Patent number: 10645200
    Abstract: Alternate acknowledgment (ACK) signals in a coalescing Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) system are disclosed. In one aspect, a network interface card (NIC) examines packet payloads, and the NIC generates an ACK signal for a sending server before sending a coalesced packet to an internal processor. Further, the NIC may examine incoming packets and send an ACK signal to the internal processor for ACK signals that are received from the sending server before sending the coalesced packet to the internal processor. By extracting and sending the ACK signals before sending the corresponding payloads in the coalesced packet, latency that would otherwise be incurred waiting for the ACK signal is eliminated. Elimination of such latency may improve network performance and may provide power savings.

The circuitry is configured to select one or more serializers among the ports to (i) meet a throughput demand via the ports and (ii) minimize an overall power consumed by the ports under a constraint of the nonlinear function, and to activate only the selected serializers. The circuitry is configured to choose for a packet received in the network element and destined to the common destination a port in which at least one of the serializers is activated, and to transmit the packet to the common destination via the chosen port.

  • Patent number: 10205550
    Abstract: An optically switched network system includes an optical switch with N inputs and N outputs that connects N end-nodes and is structured to transmit N wavelengths from each of the N inputs to each of the N outputs. The system includes a virtual data plane and a virtual control plane, which both communicate through the optical switch. The virtual data plane provides any-to-all parallel connectivity for data transmissions among the N end-nodes. The N end-nodes are partitioned into two or more subsets, wherein end-nodes in a given source subset transmit data to a given destination subset using wavelengths, which are not used by end-nodes outside of the given source subset to transmit data to the same given destination subset. The virtual control plane includes two or more rings associated with the two or more subsets of end-nodes. Each ring passes through a subset of end-nodes, and is used to communicate arbitration information among arbitration logic located at each end-node in the ring.

  • Patent number: 10181975
    Abstract: An override subsystem on the host side of a serial data link between the host and a peripheral detects and diagnoses link errors by comparing the states of the port's link-layer component and physical layer. An override controller accesses a data-store containing stored policies for responding to particular errors. After selecting the appropriate policy, the override controller takes control of the physical layer, the link-layer component, or both, reconfigures them according to the policy to correct the errors, and returns control of the physical layer to the host controller and link-layer component. As well as error recovery, the override subsystem may be used by applications or drivers to asynchronously manage power consumed by the link.
