  • Patent number: 11949650
    Abstract: A system and method for improving network performance of DNS queries. The system includes a terminal which receives DNS queries from a customer premise equipment (CPE), and supplies matching DNS records in response to the queries. The terminal monitors all traffic from the CPE and generates a preload list containing domains and a time schedule at which name resolution should be requested for the domains. A DNS preload client in the CPE receives the preload list from the terminal, and submits preload DNS queries for name resolution of domains contained in the preload list at times specified in the time schedule. Preload records supplied in response to the preload DNS queries are stored by the CPE and used to resolve DNS queries from applications installed on the CPE.

  • Patent number: 11929903
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a novel method for assessing the suitability of network links for connecting compute nodes located at different geographic sites. The method of some embodiments identifies and analyzes sample packets from a set of flows exchanged between first and second compute sites that are connected through a first network link in order to identify attributes of the sampled packets. The method also computes attributes of predicted packets between the identified samples in order to identify attributes of each flow in the set of flows. The method then uses the identified and computed attributes of each flow in the set of flows to emulate the set of flows passing between the two compute sites through the second network link in order to assess whether a second network link should be used for future flows (e.g., future flows exchanged between the first and second compute sites).

  • Patent number: 11902240
    Abstract: Network devices that are inserted inline into network links and process in-transit packets may significantly improve their packet-throughput performance by not assigning L3 IP addresses and L2 MAC addresses to their network interfaces and thereby process packets through a logical fast path that bypasses the slow path through the operating system kernel. When virtualizing such Bump-In-The-Wire (BITW) devices for deployment into clouds, the network interfaces must have L3 IP and L2 MAC addresses assigned to them. Thus, packets are processed through the slow path of a virtual BITW device, significantly reducing the performance. By adding new logic to the virtual BITW device and/or configuring proxies, addresses, subnets, and/or routing tables, a virtual BITW device can process packets through the fast path and potentially improve performance accordingly. For example, the virtual BITW device may be configured to enforce a virtual path (comprising the fast path) through the virtual BITW device.

  • Patent number: 11882169
    Abstract: Techniques are described for adapting the format of streaming media based on received interactions with the media. In an embodiment, a client computer system receives from media streaming service an initial version of media in an initial media format. After the media is presented, a request to interact with the initial version of the media may be received. Such a request may cause the client system to generate a change request data for the initial version of media. Based at least in part on the change request data for the initial version of the media, the new format for streaming the media to the client computer system is determined. The client computer system receives the media streamed in the new format.

  • Patent number: 11863613
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for allocating requests to implement new workloads within a dynamic set of servers. Existing load balancing techniques can result in “focus firing” on new servers added to the set, since a load balancer may view a new server as underloaded. With sufficient intensity, focus firing can result in overshooting target load for the new server, and the new server in fact becoming overloaded. The present disclosure modifies selection of servers as potential targets for a workload by at least partly biasing against selection of young servers. The bias imposed can be scaled to avoid overloading new servers.

  • Patent number: 11853422
    Abstract: Embodiments detect malicious code in distributed software components. A detector element references a source code repository (e.g., open source, commercial) containing lines of various files of a distributed artifact. Subject to certain possible optimizations, the detector inspects the individual files and lines of the artifact file-by-file and line-by-line, to identify whether any commit history information is available from a Versioning Control System (VCS). A risk assessor element receives from the detector element, results identifying those lines and/or files for which no VCS commit history is available. The risk assessor then references code features (e.g., file extension, security-critical API calls) in the results, to generate a probability of the malicious nature of the source code lacking VCS commit history information. An analysis report including this probability and additional relevant information, is offered to a user to conduct further manual review (e.g.

  • Patent number: 11743349
    Abstract: Example methods and systems for service request handling with protocol translation are described. In one example, in response to intercepting a service request from a virtualized computing instance, a computer system may generate and send a translated service request towards a service node. The translated service request may be generated by performing a first translation of the service request from a service protocol to a data exchange protocol supported by both a client node running on the computer system and a service node. In response to receiving the service response that is generated according to the data exchange protocol from the service node, the computer system may generate and send a translated service response towards the virtualized computing instance. The translated service response may be generated by performing a second translation of the service response from the data exchange protocol to the service protocol.
