  • Patent number: 11979334
    Abstract: A system for initiating web containers and isolating network traffic to web containers is described. The system initiates and uses web containers for associated web-based resources, such as domain addresses owned by a single entity. When a web container for a domain address has not been initiated, the system determines an owner of the domain address and any domain addresses associated with the owner and initiates a web container for the domain address and the associated domains. When a user navigates to the domain addresses associated with the determined owner, the system isolates the network activity to the initiated web container.

    Abstract: This application provides a method for controlling a connection between a terminal and a network, and an apparatus. The method includes: receiving, by a terminal, a packet filter; and discarding, by the terminal, an uplink data packet matching the packet filter. Based on this solution, a connection can be blocked near a source (that is, the connection is blocked from the terminal), to reduce traffic exchanged between the terminal and a user plane network element. Compared with an existing technical solution, the terminal implements traffic control to reduce a quantity of uplink data packets sent to the user plane network element, thereby reducing load of the user plane network element.

  • Patent number: 11855853
    Abstract: An information technology (IT) network includes configuration items (CIs) that may constantly change, where the CIs describe hardware components or software components that are configured to operate on the IT network. Machine learning techniques can be employed determine whether a CI has been changed (e.g., added, updated, or removed) in the IT network. For example, a software code or a log message associated with a CI can be analyzed to determine whether the CI is a newly added or updated within the IT network.

  • Patent number: 11848831
    Abstract: This disclosure discloses a method for managing a network service. The method includes: An OSS/a BSS obtains a first intent object from an intent template, determines description information of a first service intent that corresponds to the first intent object, and sends an intent creation request to an NFVO. The NFVO may determine, from a first mapping relationship based on an identifier of the intent template, a first network functions virtualization management and orchestration NFV MANO object corresponding to the first intent object, determines, from a second mapping relationship, a first NFV MANO operation corresponding to a first intent action, and then performs management indicated by the first NFV MANO operation on the first NFV MANO object. In a technical solution of this disclosure, an NFV MANO object is managed based on an intent. This simplifies management operation logic of the OSS/BSS, and reduces complexity of managing an NFV network.

  • Patent number: 11847027
    Abstract: An automated toolset performs configuration conflict resolution for virtual machines (VMs) providing services in a networked cloud computing system by determining a set of changes to be committed through a series of automated actions. The toolset resolves conflicts among multiple possible configurations that could result in an incorrect VM state and merges configurations in view of inputs from internal and external systems. The toolset operates to identify only a subset of changes that differ between current and new configurations that are loaded into the system to streamline configuration loading and provide for lightweight restoration by rolling back only those differences. Further efficiencies are achieved using an automated test suite environment that is specially adapted to test and validate new configurations to ensure correct loading and avoid system failures.

    Abstract: Computer program products, methods, systems, apparatus, and computing entities for tracking an item delivery are provided. In one embodiment, an item is associated with a vehicle (e.g., manned or unmanned terrestrial vehicle, nautical vehicle, and/or aerial vehicle) by updating item data in a database. An item tracking session is then generated based on the item data. Upon the determination that session availability trigger has occurred, access to the item tracking session is provided to a user. Data representing an updated location of the delivery vehicle is then used to update the item data to indicate the current location of the item as the updated location of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11843546
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described herein for determining resource usage metrics of cloud computing systems. The system may generate access tokens for an account associated with a certain resource class of resources. The system may receive requests comprising a corresponding access token request and a corresponding resource class identifier. The system may determine the corresponding resource class for each request. The system may generate aggregated resource data based on a corresponding quantity of each resource within the resource class and may determine, based on the aggregated resource data, a resource usage metric indicating a total amount of resources used by the cloud computing system.

  • Patent number: 11829804
    Abstract: A processing system is described which assigns jobs to heterogeneous processing modules. The processing system assigns jobs to the processing modules in a manner that attempts to accommodate the service demands of the jobs, but without advance knowledge of the service demands. In one case, the processing system implements the processing modules as computing units that have different physical characteristics. Alternatively, or in addition, the processing system may implement the processing modules as threads that are executed by computing units. Each thread which runs on a computing unit offers a level of performance that depends on a number of other threads that are simultaneously being executed by the same computing unit.
