  • Patent number: 10812317
    Abstract: A system defining fault management actions for a network based on historical reference implemented by at least one computer. The system comprises the alarm process application stored in the memory. When executed by the processor, the alarm process application classifies the plurality of alarms that are stored in the alarm summary table based on which part of the network an alarm is from, scores a priority of each of the plurality of alarms based on the classification and a geographical location of an alarm, and determines a signature for some of the subset of the plurality of alarms to be stored in the matches table, wherein a signature is a set of column and value pairs that occur in alarm fields with an occurrence rate above a predefined threshold.

  • Patent number: 9959160
    Abstract: An improved method provides fault handling in a distributed IT environment. The distributed IT environment executes a workflow application interacting with at least one application by using interface information about the at least one application. In response to receiving a first instance of a fault response, a fault handler performing a first lookup of a fault handling policy corresponding to the fault response within a fault handling descriptions catalog. The fault handler loads a first one or more fault handling descriptions that are pointed to by the fault handling policy in order to continue execution of the workflow application. After a second instance of the fault response, the fault handler performs a second lookup of the fault handling policy which now points to a second one or more fault handling descriptions which are loaded in order to continue execution of the workflow application.

  • Patent number: 9779361
    Abstract: A method detects anomalies in time series data, by first learning a final set of exemplars by summarizing training time series data using a divide-and-conquer procedure. Then, for each window of testing time series data, a distance to a nearest exemplar in the final set of exemplars is determined, wherein the distance is an anomaly score. Finally, an anomaly is signaled when the anomaly score for a window is greater than a threshold.
