  • Patent number: 12032431
    Abstract: A system and method for determining a blast radius of a major incident occurring in a virtual desktop system is disclosed. The virtual desktop system has interconnected service components and provides access to virtual desktops by client devices. An event collection module collects events from the service components. An aggregation module merges the collected events in a time-ordered stream, provides context to the events in the time-ordered stream through relationships between the collected events, and generates a correlated event stream. An analysis module determines a stream of problem reports from the correlated event stream. The analysis module determines a spike in the stream of problem reports and determines the attributes of the problem reports in the spike to define the major incident. The analysis module determines a scope of the major incident and a corresponding attribute, to determine a blast radius associated with the major incident in the desktop system.

  • Patent number: 12032637
    Abstract: Single-click delta analysis is disclosed. A user query of status information collected from one or more monitored devices is received from a user. In response to receiving an indication from the user to determine a variance between different portions of the collected status information, a target query and a baseline query are generated using the user query. The generated target query and the generated baseline query are performed, respectively, against data in a data store including the status information collected from the one or more monitored devices. A target set of status information results and a baseline set of status information results are obtained in response to performing, respectively, the generated target query and the generated baseline query. The obtained target and baseline sets of results are combined. Output indicative of a variance between the target and baseline sets of status information results is provided based at least in part on the combining.

For example, a read-only historical archive copy of the result set may be created, while the previous version of the result set is used in further stages of the analysis workflow. The trigger conditions may include a number of situations such as moving backwards in the workflow and making a change, moving across gated step boundaries in the analysis workflow, or receiving an instruction to clear the result set. The persistent, historical copies of the result set may be used to support auditing of a compliance-driven analysis process.

  • Patent number: 11868735
    Abstract: In an embodiment, communication data including an interaction between at least two individuals in an organization is received via at least two communication platforms. Content of the interaction is extracted to produce extracted content. A frequency of interaction and a type of interaction between the at least two individuals is determined based on the extracted content. A map representative of social interaction within the organization is generated. The map includes an indication of the frequency of interaction and the type of interaction between the at least two individuals. A new frequency of the interaction and a new type of interaction for at least a first individual of the at least two individuals with another individual is determined based on the map. A signal representing the new frequency of interaction and the new type of interaction with the other individual in the organization is provided to a compute device.

  • Patent number: 11861852
    Abstract: A system includes a sensor and a tracking subsystem. The tracking subsystem receives an image feed of top-view images generated by the sensor. The tracking subsystem detects an event associated with an item being removed from a rack. The tracking subsystem determines that a first person and a second person may be associated with the event. In response, the tracking subsystem dilates contours associated with the first and second person from a first depth to a second depth until the contours enter a zone adjacent to the rack. A number of iterations is determined for each contour to enter the zone adjacent to the rack. If the first person's contour enters the zone in fewer iterations, the item is assigned to the first person.
