International Business Machines Corporation, Thomas F Galvin, Gerald R Woods, April 3, 1990: US04914571 (168 worldwide citation)

A LOCATE search dynamically locates resources (e.g., logical units (LUs) and transaction program and files associated with LUs) in a computer network so that a session can be established between the origin and the destination of the search.

International Business Machines Corporation, Gerald R Woods, October 10, 1989: US04873517 (89 worldwide citation)

When computing a least weight path from an origin node to a destination node in a data communication network, a route-computing network node uses information provided by the origin and destination nodes to compute least weight routes from those nodes to adjacent network nodes. The route-computing ne ...

International Business Machines, Gerald R Woods, April 28, 1992: US05109483 (71 worldwide citation)

Enhanced type 2.1 nodes for SNA networks provide network routing of information between non-adjacent network nodes and program-to-program linkage across the network. These nodes are called "advanced peer to peer networking" (abbreviated APPN) nodes. Network state information, describing the topology ...

Owen H Choi, John E Drake Jr, James C Fletcher, Johnathan L Harter, Jeffrey G Knauth, Dirk K Kramer, Michael A Lerner, Joseph L McKinnon, Lee M Rafalow, Siddall William E, Melinda P Stump: System for locating a node containing a requested resource and for selectively verifying the presence of the resource at the node. International Business Machines, Gerald R Woods, June 22, 1993: US05222242 (47 worldwide citation)

The present invention is an improvement in a known LOCATE process used to locate resources in a computer network. The known LOCATE process always requires that information about a target resource be verified by forwarding a LOCATE request to the node owning the target resource. The present invention ...

International Business Machines Corporation, Duke W Yee, Jerry W Herndon, Gerald H Glanzman, December 11, 2007: US07308501 (14 worldwide citation)

A method, apparatus, and computer implemented instructions for processing a request in a data processing system. The request is received. In response to a first hash value being present within the request, the first hash value is compared to a second hash value that was computed locally, wherein the ...

James P Gray, Jeffrey G Knauth, Diane P Pozefsky, Lee M Rafalow: Method of establishing transmission group numbers for network links. International Business Machines Corporation, Gerald R Woods, September 4, 1990: US04954821 (5 worldwide citation)

The invention enables two nodes in a communications network to dynamically establish the transmission group number used to partially identify a given link between the nodes. When the link is being activated, both nodes simultaneously propose either a zero or a non-zero number to each other in an exc ...
