|20090238070||METHOD AND SYSTEM TO ADJUST CN CONTROL LOOP PARAMETERS AT A CONGESTION POINT - A method and system to adjust Congestion Notification control loop parameters at a congestion point are provided. The system comprises a monitor to sample a state of a congestion point the congestion point being to receive messages from a reaction point; a history generator to generate an updated reaction to congestion history by consolidating the state of the congestion point with a current reaction to congestion history, the current reaction to congestion history being associated with a current feedback message; a message generator to generate an updated feedback message based on the updated reaction to congestion history; a message update module to replace the current feedback message with the updated feedback message; and a communications module to communicate the updated feedback message to the reaction point.||09-24-2009|
|20090037977||APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR APPLYING NETWORK POLICY AT A NETWORK DEVICE - This document discusses, among other things, applying network policy at a network device. In an example embodiment fibre channel hard zoning information may be received that indicates whether a fibre channel frame is permitted to be communicated between two fibre channel ports. Some example embodiments include identifying a media access control addresses associated with the fibre channel ports. An example embodiment may include generating one or more access control entries based on the fibre channel identifications of the fibre channel ports and the zoning information. The access control entries may be distributes to an Ethernet port to be inserted into an existing access control list and used to enforce a zoning policy upon fibre channel over Ethernet frames.||02-05-2009|
|20080313724||N-PORT ID VIRTUALIZATION (NPIV) PROXY MODULE, NPIV PROXY SWITCHING SYSTEM AND METHODS - Embodiments of an N-Port ID virtualization (NPIV) proxy module, NPIV proxy switching system, and methods are generally described herein. Other embodiments may be described and claimed. In some embodiments, login requests are distributed over a plurality of available N-ports to allow servers to be functionally coupled to F-ports of a plurality of fiber-channel (FC) switches. Fiber-channel identifiers (FCIDs) are assigned to the servers in response to the logon requests to provide single end-host operations for each of the servers.||12-18-2008|
|20080301759||APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR APPLYING NETWORK POLICY AT VIRTUAL INTERFACES - Methods and apparatus are disclosed for applying network policy to communications originating at operating system virtual interfaces. In an example embodiment, a network device is networked with a switch. The network device may include a first operating system interface, a virtualization adapter, and an input output port. In an example embodiment, the virtualization adapter receives a first frame from the first operating system interface. The virtualization adapter may tag the first frame to indicate an association between the first frame and the first operating system interface. The first frame may then be transmitted with a second frame being associated with a second operating system interface, to the switch via the input output port. In an example embodiment, the switch is configured to receive the frame, examine a tag and then to enforce a network policy upon the first frame, based on the tag.||12-04-2008|
