  • Patent number: 11568596
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to a non-blocking token authentication cache. In various embodiments, a server computer system receives a request for service from a client device, with the request including an authentication token issued by an authentication service. The server computer system accesses a cache of previously received validation responses from the authentication service to determine whether one of the validation responses indicates that the authentication token has already been validated by the authentication service. In response to determining that the cache includes a validation response indicating that the authentication token has already been validated by the authentication service, the server computer system first provides a response to the request for service to the client device, and then contacts the authentication service to determine whether the authentication token is still valid.

  • Patent number: 11537538
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a cache coherent system includes one or more agents (e.g., coherent agents) that may cache data used by the system. The system may include a point of coherency in a memory controller in the system, and thus the agents may transmit read requests to the memory controller to coherently read data. The point of coherency may determine if the data is cached in another agent, and may transmit a copy back request to the other agent if the other agent has modified the data. The system may include an interconnect between the agents and the memory controller. At a point on the interconnect at which traffic from the agents converges, a copy back response may be converted to a fill for the requesting agent.

  • Patent number: 11456872
    Abstract: Examples of the present disclosure describe systems and methods relating to the offline protection of secrets. A secret may be encrypted using a public key provided by the client. The client may have obtained the public key from a cryptographic hardware device, wherein the private key of the cryptographic key pair may be bound to the cryptographic hardware device. The encrypted secret may be transmitted by a service to the client using a secured or an unsecured transmission method. In some examples, the service may transmit a subsequent encrypted secret, which may invalidate a previously encrypted secret. In order to authenticate with the service, the client may select an encrypted secret for decryption. The client may access the private key stored by the cryptographic device and decrypt the encrypted secret with the private key. The client may then use the decrypted secret to authenticate with the service.

    Abstract: An electronic device comprises a first processor and a second processor. An inter-processor communication module is connected to the processors and comprises a high priority mailbox and a low priority mailbox. The first processor sends a high or low priority message to the second processor. The first processor is arranged such that if it has a high priority message to send to the second processor, the first processor places the high priority message in the high priority mailbox and sends an interrupt request to the second processor. However, when the first processor has a low priority message to send to the second processor, the first processor places the high priority message in the low priority mailbox to be checked later without sending an interrupt request to the second processor.

  • Patent number: 11057454
    Abstract: This application relates to apparatus and methods for identifying and remediating poor user experiences on computing devices. In some examples, a user speed determination device is configured to receive a content delivery request for delivery of content to a user device. The computing is also configured to obtain user identification data, obtain user device data and determine a user device speed based on the user identification data and the user device data. The computing device then sends a user device speed indicator to a content delivery device to cause the content delivery device to deliver remediated content to the user device when the user device speed is determined to be less than a predetermined speed threshold. The user identification data can include an IP address and the user device data can include user agent data, user connection data and user resource timing data.

  • Patent number: 11049562
    Abstract: Emerging byte-addressable persistent memory technologies, generically referred to as Storage Class Memory, offer performance advantages and access similar to Dynamic Random Access Memory while having the persistence of disk. Unifying storage and memory into a memory tier that can be accessed directly requires additional burden to ensure that groups of memory operations to persistent or nonvolatile memory locations are performed sequentially, atomically, and not caught in the cache hierarchy. The present invention provides a lightweight solution for the atomicity and durability of write operations to nonvolatile memory, while simultaneously supporting fast paths through the cache hierarchy to memory. The invention includes a hardware-supported solution with modifications to the memory hierarchy comprising a victim cache and additional memory controller logic.

  • Patent number: 11038815
    Abstract: Technologies for managing burst bandwidth requirements are disclosed. In the illustrative embodiment, a software-defined network (SDN) controller monitors storage devices in a data center. If a storage device fails, the SDN controller manages the bandwidth used to replicate the data that was stored on the failed storage device. The SDN controller may allocate an initial amount of bandwidth based on one or more parameters of the storage device, and the SDN controller may increase the bandwidth in a series of discrete steps. In another embodiment, the SDN controller may predict a bandwidth burst based on sequential writes at a storage sled from several compute devices, and allocate bandwidth accordingly in a tiered manner.

    Abstract: A distributed file system that includes multiple computing node tiers. Each of at least some of the multiple computing node tiers has multiple computing nodes having like characteristics. The distributed file system also has an executable component in the form of a distribution component that comprises logic that distributes state of file system entities amongst the computing node tiers. The distribution is performed so that latency of file system requests are reduced due to state responsive to many requests being much closer latency wise to the file system requestor(s). Furthermore, the distribution considers durability guarantees of the state, thereby meeting durability guarantees.

  • Patent number: 10911560
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide partitioned serialized caching and delivery of large sized content and files. Some embodiments partition requests for large sized content into segment requests with each segment request identifying a different byte range of the requested content. Each segment request is hashed to identify a particular server from a set of servers tasked with caching and delivering a different segment of the requested content. In this manner, no single server caches or delivers the entirety of large sized content. The segment requests are distributed serially across the set of servers so that the segments are passed in order, wherein the serial distribution involves handing-off the requesting user's connection serially to each server of the set of server in the order with which the set of servers deliver the content segments.
