  • Patent number: 10949253
    Abstract: A scheduler manages execution of a plurality of data-collection jobs, assigns individual jobs to specific forwarders in a set of forwarders, and generates and transmits tokens (e.g., pairs of data-collection tasks and target sources) to assigned forwarders. The forwarder uses the tokens, along with stored information applicable across jobs, to collect data from the target source and forward it onto an indexer for processing. For example, the indexer can then break a data stream into discrete events, extract a timestamp from each event and index (e.g., store) the event based on the timestamp. The scheduler can monitor forwarders' job performance, such that it can use the performance to influence subsequent job assignments. Thus, data-collection jobs can be efficiently assigned to and executed by a group of forwarders, where the group can potentially be diverse and dynamic in size.

  • Patent number: 10936690
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable medium for providing content with respect to a website. A request for content is received where the request includes information related to a user. One or more pieces of localized content associated with at least one condition is retrieved when it is determined that the at least one condition is consistent with the information related to the user, where each localized content is localized with respect to the content requested. At least one of the retrieved localized content is identified when the information related to the user meets the associated at least one condition. The identified at least one localized content is sent as a response to the received request for content.

  • Patent number: 10938820
    Abstract: A system includes a network adapter operable to interface with one or more computer networks. The system also includes a processing system operably coupled to the network adapter and configured to perform a plurality of operations. The operations include monitoring for a request to transfer data from a file including a self-destruction indicator, determining a targeted destination of the data based on detecting the request to transfer the data from the file including the self-destruction indicator, and determining whether the targeted destination is within an allowed network list associated with the file. The system prevents the transfer of data from the file to the targeted destination through the network adapter based on determining that the allowed network list excludes the targeted destination.

  • Patent number: 10922281
    Abstract: Deduplication of files or other data or objects in a manner that is aware of a format of the file and the application. A file may be chunked based on the format. The chunks are more consistent and lead to higher deduplication ratios. The file may be presented as a single file. However, the file is stored in chunks or subfiles and deduplication is performed with respect to the chunks. When the file is read, the file is rebuilt from its respective chunks. The files may also be compressed using differential compression, which leverages the content of similar files to compress a current file.

  • Patent number: 10922202
    Abstract: Application service configuration of a timeframe for performing dataloss failover (failover that does not attempt full data replication to the secondary data store) from a primary data store to the secondary data store. A data-tier service, such as perhaps a database as a service (or DBaaS), could receive that configuration from the application service and automatically perform the dataloss failover as configured by the application service. This relieves the application service from having to manage the failover workflow while still allowing the application service to appropriately balance the timing of dataloss failover, which will depend on a very application-specific optimal balance between the negative effects of operational latency versus dataloss.

  • Patent number: 10917357
    Abstract: Processes pending execution in respective compute nodes (N1-Nn) of a cluster of a distributed HPC computer can communicate with one another by message exchange through an interconnected fabric. To exchange messages between the processes a method is proposed to identify the physical cards associated with the compute nodes directly from the hostname of the compute nodes as they are used in the user program. This direct identification is made from at least one mapping table (MT1) associating bijectively the hostname of each compute node of the cluster with the unique logical address of the associated physical card. This mapping table is kept in a component of the computer responsible for managing the fabric, i.e. the fabric manager (FM1). Various implementations enable scaling when accomplishing the method of message exchange between processes.

  • Patent number: 10917467
    Abstract: A computing system implemented method is disclosed for distributing data objects in a network of computing nodes. Each node has stored thereon subscription rules defining characteristics of data objects that the particular node may require during processing. The nodes exchange their subscription rules with other nodes in the network. Each node then compares the rules received from other nodes with the attributes of data objects stored on the particular node. Where a rule set matches the attributes of a data object stored thereon, the node marks the particular data object for copying to the node from which the particular rule set was received. The marked data object is then copied to the appropriate node.

  • Patent number: 10917436
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for on-demand security provisioning using whitelist and blacklist rules. In some examples, a system in a network including a plurality of pods can configure security policies for a first endpoint group (EPG) in a first pod, the security policies including blacklist and whitelist rules defining traffic security enforcement rules for communications between the first EPG and a second EPG in a second pods in the network. The system can assign respective implicit priorities to the one or more security policies based on a respective specificity of each policy, wherein more specific policies are assigned higher priorities than less specific policies. The system can respond to a detected move of a virtual machine associated with the first EPG to a second pod in the network by dynamically provisioning security policies for the first EPG in the second pod and removing security policies from the first pod.

  • Patent number: 10911573
    Abstract: Techniques for web-based collaborative inking sessions via a computer network are described in this document. In one embodiment, a first computer can serialize detected pointer input at a first computer into data representing one or more ink objects individually representing an image or animation corresponding to the detected pointer input. The first computer can then transmit the data representing the serialized ink objects to the second computer via the computer network. Upon receiving the transmitted data, the second computer can de-serialize the received serialized ink objects, reconstruct the image or animation corresponding to the detected pointer input at the first computer, and surface, to a second user, the image or animation of the detected pointer input on a second web browser surfacing the same webpage on the second computer, thereby enabling a web-based collaboration session between the first and second users.
