20120265900UPDATING ROUTING INFORMATION BASED ON CLIENT LOCATION - A system, method, and computer-readable medium for updating request routing information associated with client location information are provided. A content delivery network service provider receives a DNS query from a client computing device. The DNS query corresponds to a resource identifier for requested content from the client computing device. The content delivery network service provider obtains a query IP address corresponding to the client computing device. Based on routing information associated with the query IP address, the content delivery network service provider routes the DNS query. The process further includes monitoring performance data associated with the transmission of the requested resource and updating routing information associated with the query IP address based on the performance data for use in processing subsequent requests form the client computing device.10-18-2012
20100042745Workflow diagram generation program, apparatus and method - In a computer for executing a process in accordance with a workflow diagram generation program, a path extractor extracts processing paths from program information indicating the procedure of a business program, and generates path information indicating read and update processes performed in the individual processing paths and operation screens displayed in the processing paths. A path associator associates each transition relation, which is the relation between two data sets successively updated, with a processing path of which the data set to be read agrees with the data set of the transition source and of which the data set to be updated agrees with the data set of the transition destination. A flow diagram generator generates a workflow diagram which indicates the data sets as nodes and the transition relations as links and in which information indicating the operation screens displayed in the processing paths are annexed to the corresponding links.02-18-2010
20090157902Virtual Networks - A virtual network has a plurality of nodes. Each node has the capability to provide a service to another node. Each node maintains a list for storing entries each representing a link to another node; each entry contains the address of the other node and a label identifying a service that that other node may provide. Each node also has a store for storing messages received from other nodes, these messages serving to propose a link and containing the identity of the node originating the message, a label identifying a service that that other node may provide and a label identifying a service that that other node requires. When a node needs a service that it is not itself able to provide, it searches the link list for a link having a label that matches the service needed, and in the event that such a link is found it transmits to the node identified by the link a message requesting the service. If, however, no such link is found, it searches the message store for a message identifying another node where the label identifying a service that that other node may provide matches the service needed and the label identifying a service that that other node requires matches the service that the node needing the service has the capability to provide. In the event that such a message is found it initiates the creation of a corresponding entry in the link list. If no such message is found, the node needing the service generates a message serving to propose a link and containing its own identity, a label identifying a service that it has the capability to provide and a label identifying the service that it needs.06-18-2009

20110022728LINK STATE ROUTING PROTOCOLS FOR DATABASE SYNCHRONIZATION IN GMPLS NETWORKS - The present invention relates to a method and apparatus for synchronizing local databases maintained control plane (CP) nodes in a GMPLS network.

This verification is based on a few fields of the LSA that contain link state (LS) identifying information. A CP node that is not involved in path computation stores only the LS identifying information and discards the remainder after the LSA is relayed to it neighbor CP nodes.01-27-2011

The closest web server is determined through in-network health check measurements, with the authoritative DNS resolvers dynamically selecting IP addresses closest to themselves. Routing protocols that directed the packet to the closest authoritative DNS resolver also dictate the route of subsequent traffic to the network. Thus, the closest web server selected by the authoritative DNS resolver is also the closest web server to the client.07-02-2009

20090319688PARTICIPATING IN CLOUD AS TOTALLY STUBBY EDGE - A Totally Stubby Edge (TSE) participates in a cloud under the condition that the TSE may select paths for frames that the TSE introduces to the cloud, but may not transit frames between nodes in the cloud. The edge submits, to an administrator of the cloud, a request to join the cloud. If the administrator allows the request, then the edge is given access to the address tables that define the structure of the cloud, and may insert itself into the structure. The edge may use the address tables to select paths for frames that the edge introduces to the cloud. Normally path decisions are made by devices that the administrator trusts and controls. However, since the TSE selects paths for its own frames but does not transit frames between other nodes in the cloud, the TSE may select paths even if it is untrusted by the administrator.12-24-2009
