  • Patent number: 11061917
    Abstract: Roughly described, a database accelerator is installed in a network having client systems which makes database queries to a particular IP address and port, and database servers which accept queries received at an IP address and port. The accelerator includes a cache, and is arranged to receive, through a network port, a database query made by a client system and directed to the particular IP address and port, return response data from the cache if available there, and if not, then forward the query through a network port to the database servers. Upon receipt of response data from the servers, the accelerator can retain it in its cache in addition to forwarding it back to the client. By installing the accelerator transparently in the network, no changes are required to either the client or server software in order to add query caching functionality to an existing client/server database arrangement.

  • Patent number: 10942926
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for determining elements of different database tables have a semantic relationship, and optionally executing a value query using such tables. Tables, including those lacking a technical relationship (such as having a foreign key relationship or association) can be semantically related if an element of the table has the same semantic identifier, such as a domain, as an element of another table. The semantic relationship can exist even if other information, such as field names associated with a respective semantic identifier, are different between the two tables. A source table can be semantically related to one or more other tables, including indirectly based on semantic relationships between two or more of such other tables. Semantic table information can be recursively analyzed, including in a hierarchical manner, to identify a set of semantically related tables. The analysis can be constrained, such as to avoid loops or limit result size or running time.

  • Patent number: 10872346
    Abstract: A method for communicating with an under-test object and a communicating system are provided. The method includes the following steps. A command signal is provided from a processing unit of the communicating system to the under-test object, and the processing unit waits for receiving a response signal from the under-test object. If the response signal from the under-test object 5 has not been received by the processing unit for a predetermined waiting time period, the command signal is provided to the under-test object again and the predetermined waiting time period is adjusted. There is an exponential relation between the predetermined waiting time period and the number of times the command signal is provided to the under-test object.

  • Patent number: 10868860
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a processor that repeats, for a predetermined time period, transmission of an inspection signal to a first device and reception of load information in response to the inspection signal. The processor calculates, for each load of the first device, a threshold value of a response time based on the load information and a response time. The processor distributes, to the first device and a second device, requests for the first device when a response time of the first device after the predetermined time period elapses exceeds a threshold value corresponding to a load. The processor determines whether to switch from the first device to the second device based on a result obtained by comparing a first load of the first device with a second load of the second device after the requests are distributed to the first device and the second device.

  • Patent number: 10862923
    Abstract: A digital security threat management system is disclosed. The system detects the presence of a computing system, on a network, that has been compromised by an undetected and/or unknown digital security threat. The digital security threat management system recognizes characteristic emanations from a computer system that has been compromised. Because the characteristic emanations that result from a known threat can be the same as the characteristic emanations that result from an undetected and/or unknown threat, the digital security threat management system can learn to detect a computing system that has been compromised by an unknown threat if the security threat management system recognizes characteristic emanations from a previous attack, based on a known threat, of the computing system. In this way, the system can detect the presence of a compromised computing system, even if the cause of the compromise remains undetected and/or unknown. Appropriate remedial action may be taken upon detection.

  • Patent number: 10834002
    Abstract: A method includes examining a first data packet transmitted to a first network equipment from a second network equipment. A data flow type of the first data packet is determined. If the data flow type is determined to be the first type of data flow, determining a delivery throughput of the first data packet to the first network equipment over a data flow path. The determined delivery performance of the first data packet is compared to an expected peak data throughput capacity for a data packet transmitted to the first network equipment from the second network equipment. Transmission of data packets to the first network equipment is paced if the comparison of the determined delivery performance and the expected peak data throughput capacity indicates a congestion exists over the data flow path.

  • Patent number: 10805187
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for logging communication packets from a communication signal in a communication network. The communication network includes one or more perimeters. A split signal is formed of said communication signal, the communication signal including information, and the split signal being identical in information content to the communication signal. The communication packets of the split signal are captured using a network interface controller into a transitory memory. The network interface controller operates in real promiscuous mode. A virtual network interface controller may be operated from an isolated user space container, the isolated user space container having access to said transitory memory as an isolated memory range. The communication packets may be captured into the isolated memory range and the data of the communication packets may be written from the isolated memory range to the non-transitory memory.

  • Patent number: 10805238
    Abstract: A journal service maintains a journal that holds a number of journal entries. Access to the journal entries is controlled by providing a lead resource with access to a named role associated with the journal. A pool of alternate resources containing potential replacements for the lead resource is maintained. A succession order may be established for the pool of alternate resources, and individual resources in the pool of alternate resources may be managed based at least in part on their position within the succession order. The succession order may be established using various criteria that are indicative of a likelihood that a particular alternate resource will be available if the lead resource fails, such as the presence of shared points of failure between the current lead resource and an alternate resource. The lead resource may be replaced with an alternate resource as a result of various impeachment events.

  • Patent number: 10798006
    Abstract: Described in this document, among other things, is an overload protection system that can protect data sinks from overload by controlling the volume of data sent to those data sinks in a fine-grained manner. The protection system preferably sits in between edge servers, or other producers of data, and data sinks that will receive some or all of the data. Preferably, each data sink owner defines a policy to control how and when overload protection will be applied. Each policy can include definitions of how to monitor the stream of data for overload and specify one or more conditions upon which traffic shaping actions are necessary. In embodiments, a policy can contain a multi-part specification to identify the class(es) of traffic to monitor to see if the conditions have been triggered.

  • Patent number: 10795844
    Abstract: This invention is a bus communication protocol. A master device stores bus credits. The master device may transmit a bus transaction only if it holds sufficient number and type of bus credits. Upon transmission, the master device decrements the number of stored bus credits. The bus credits correspond to resources on a slave device for receiving bus transactions. The slave device must receive the bus transaction if accompanied by the proper credits. The slave device services the transaction. The slave device then transmits a credit return. The master device adds the corresponding number and types of credits to the stored amount. The slave device is ready to accept another bus transaction and the master device is re-enabled to initiate the bus transaction. In many types of interactions a bus agent may act as both master and slave depending upon the state of the process.
