  • Patent number: 10986011
    Abstract: System utilization related to memory usage can be monitored by storing host memory usage information in the corresponding host physical memory. However, retrieving this information can be a high overhead operation because it involves engaging with the operating system of each host. Moreover, storing memory usage information in the host physical memories can pose a security risk if they also store privileged data. Network interfaces according to the present disclosure provide unobtrusive and secure support for monitoring of network and other system resources such as regions of memory within host physical memories. Implementations according to the present disclosure include a plurality of memory region counters stored on a network interface. Each memory region counter corresponds to one of the memory regions located in a physical memory of a host coupled to the network interface. Each of the counters includes a system utilization metric associated with its corresponding memory region.

  • Patent number: 10579573
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to a configuration interface of a network ASIC. The configuration interface allows for two modes of traversal of nodes. The nodes form one or more chains. Each chain is in a ring or a list topology. A master receives external access transactions. Once received by the master, an external access transaction traverses the chains to reach a target node. A target node either is an access to a memory space or is a module. A chain can include at least one decoder. A decoder includes logic that determines which of its leaves to send an external access transaction to. In contrast, if a module is not the target node, then the module passes an external access transaction to the next node coupled thereto; otherwise, if the module is the target node, the transmission of the external access transaction stops at the module.

  • Patent number: 10432513
    Abstract: For a managed network implementing at least one logical router having centralized and distributed components, some embodiments provide a method that better supports the provision of certain network applications and/or services. The method receives at a host implementing (1) a distributed logical router and (2) a plurality of logical switches of a logical network along with other hosts, a message from a first data compute node (DCN) executing on the host. The host logically forwards the message to the distributed logical router that uses a particular anycast internet protocol (IP) address using a first media access control (MAC) address. The distributed router determines that the message requires processing by a centralized logical router (e.g., a service router, edge node, etc.) executing on an edge node host and forwards the message to the centralized logical router using the same anycast IP address and a second, unique MAC address.

  • Patent number: 10409494
    Abstract: Mass storage devices of any interface can be redirected to a server. When a mass storage device is connected to a client terminal, a client-side proxy can obtain information about the device including the interface by which the device connects to the client terminal. The proxy can relay this information to a server-side agent which can instruct a VMiniport enumerator to enumerate the mass storage device using the interface specified in the information. When the VMiniport driver is loaded, the agent can also use the information to cause the VMiniport driver and the storport driver to be initialized in accordance with the specified interface. The VMiniport driver and storport driver will therefore be configured to communicate IO requests targeting the mass storage device in a format appropriate for the interface.

  • Patent number: 10219016
    Abstract: Techniques disclosed herein include systems and methods for excluding specific application traffic from customer consumption-based data billing counts. This is useful for excluding traffic from consumption totals where the application traffic has been accounted for using other means, such as through billing as a separate or technically distinct service. In practice, a tablet computer (or other end user device) can run a video application that uses a high-speed data network via a cable modem. This video application may be included as part of a core video package associated with a distinct cable television service. The system then provides accurate consumption billing of customer traffic that is outside of any other managed services by creating separate logical data service flows at a Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) for excluding specific traffic counts.
