  • Patent number: 9594842
    Abstract: Roughly described, a network interface device is assigned a maximum extent-of-search. A hash function is applied to the header information of each incoming packet, to generate a hash code for the packet. The hash code designates a particular subset of the table within which the particular header information should be found, and an iterative search is made within that subset. If the search locates a matching entry before the search limit is exceeded, then the incoming data packet is delivered to the receive queue identified in the matching entry. But if the search reaches the search limit before a matching entry is located, then device delivers the packet to a default queue, such as a kernel queue, in the host computer system. The kernel is then responsible for delivering the packet to the correct endpoint.

  • Patent number: 9516130
    Abstract: A caching system receives a request Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that includes multiple parameters. The request URI is modified to create a canonical request URI including: ordering the parameters by name while keeping a relative order of any of the parameters that have a same name but different value; normalizing a case of the parameters; and removing any of the parameters that are determined to have no effect on a resource that corresponds to the request URI. The modified request URI is hashed thereby creating a hash value. The hash value is used to determine whether the resource that corresponds to the request URI is available in cache.

  • Patent number: 9510191
    Abstract: Various embodiments are disclosed for enabling a user to physically acknowledge monitoring of their mobile device's network address (e.g., upon entering a store to track the user's movement through the store based upon the mobile device's MAC address). An Access Point coupled with a network system may identify the user device's MAC address, but the network system may defer retention and use of the MAC address until the user provides a physical authorization to do so. The user may provide such a physical authorization by placing their mobile device in physical proximity to a kiosk. The kiosk may emit a signal via, e.g., a magnetic field, radiation, sonification, imaging, etc. An application running on the user device may receive this signal. For example, the kiosk may emit a magnetic field to manipulate the user device's compass hardware. The application may monitor and derive a kiosk identifier from these manipulations.

  • Patent number: 9497281
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed towards methods and systems for caching packet steering sessions for steering data packets between intermediary devices of a cluster of intermediary devices intermediary to a client and a plurality of servers. A first intermediary device receives a first data packet and determines, from a hash of a tuple of the first packet, a second intermediary device to which to steer the first packet. The first device stores, to a session for storing packet steering information, the identity of the second device and the tuple. The first device receives a second packet having a corresponding tuple that matches the tuple of the first packet and determines, based on a lookup for the session using the tuple of the second packet, that the second device is the intermediary device to which to steer the second packet. The first device steers the second packet to the second device.

  • Patent number: 9485183
    Abstract: A packet distribution scheme for forwarding incoming packets to servers in a network. Depending on a hash value of the incoming flow's identification parameters, a hash flow table or database is queried to determine the server to which the packet is to be forwarded. If multiple flows have the same hash index and are associated with different servers, a secondary flow table or database is queried for determining the server. In an example implementation, only the secondary flow table is configured to store fully qualified flow identification parameters whereas the hash flow table is operative to store reduced or compressed state information.

  • Patent number: 9479917
    Abstract: In general, techniques are described for facilitating fine-grained charging control for multi-service subscriber sessions by configuring charging control actions for application to services at the rating group level. For example, a mobile network gateway includes configuration information that defines a plurality of rating groups for a subscriber session, wherein each of the plurality of rating groups is associated with at least one service, and wherein the configuration information defines an actionable event and a corresponding charging control action for a rating group of the plurality of rating groups. A subscriber management module establishes a bearer of the mobile network for the subscriber session and associates the plurality of rating groups with the bearer. A charging client determines the occurrence of the actionable event defined by the configuration information for the rating group and applies the corresponding charging control action for the actionable event to the rating group.
