  • Patent number: 11943093
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for enabling graceful recovery of network connections in a virtual machine instance that has been migrated or temporarily halted. To prevent the virtual machine instance from attempting to reuse open connections, which might fail due to migration or halting, a host device identifies open connections just prior to halting the virtual machine instance on the host, and transmits to the virtual machine instance termination signals for the open connections. The host device may further transmit termination signals to the other parties to such connections. Each termination signal may be formatted so as to appear to originate from the other party to the connection, causing both parties to synchronize their knowledge of the connection. On reactivation, the virtual machine instance can recovery the connections without errors associated with attempted utilization of broken connections.

  • Patent number: 11909656
    Abstract: A CPU implements a virtual network function (VNF) associated with flow processing and can offload at least some of the flow processing to a hardware accelerator. A module (e.g., TOR switch), external to the software-based processor and the hardware accelerator, examines packet flows and determines (e.g., using a top-K elephant-flow-detection algorithm) which ones are more suitable for offloading from the software-based processor to the hardware accelerator than others. The external module communicates the relative suitability for offloading to the CPU using packet tags or out-of-band messaging, and the CPU uses the relative suitability to determine which flows to offload or onload. In some implementations, the CPU can instruct the external module to change the value of K used in the algorithm.

  • Patent number: 11799761
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for forwarding data messages between edge nodes that perform stateful processing on flows between a logical network and an external network. At a particular edge node, the method receives a data message belonging to a flow. The edge nodes use a deterministic algorithm to select one of the edge nodes to perform processing for each flow. The method identifies a first edge node to perform processing for the flow in a previous configuration and a second edge node to perform processing for the flow in a new configuration according to the algorithm. When the first and second edge nodes are different, the method uses a probabilistic filter and a stateful connection tracker to determine whether the flow existed prior to a particular time. When the flow did not exist prior to that time, the method selects the second edge node for the received data message.

  • Patent number: 11736594
    Abstract: A method and system of a low-latency FPGA framework based on reliable UDP and TCP re-assembly middleware is disclosed. The need for low-latency communication in digital systems has increased drastically. The disclosed FPGA framework enables low-latency communication as a hybrid framework that supports both UDP & TCP communication. As known in art, TCP provides error checking support hence making TCP more reliable as compared to UDP, while UDP is faster but not reliable. Hence the disclosed low-latency FPGA framework latency utilizes the advantage of both UDP and TCP by utilizing UDP for its speed, while switching to TCP in case of a missing sequence in UDP. Further, the disclosed system proposes a TCP re-assembly middleware architecture for processing TCP with a lower-latency, wherein the TCP re-assembly middleware is an independent middleware that is a modular and a plug-play independent middleware.
