A method and system of modeling a selected service within a network environment includes forming a service model template that is not specific to the network environment, but identifies anticipated network elements and network services that cooperate to enable the selected service. The service model ...

Riccardo Gusella, Srinivas Ramanathan: Flexible scheme for admission control of multimedia streams on integrated networks. Hewlett Packard Company, April 18, 1995: US05408465 (344 worldwide citation)

An admission control scheme for real-time traffic requests in communication networks is disclosed. The scheme monitors tile performance of each link and predicts the traffic guarantees that can be offered when certain dummy traffic (pseudo traffic) mimicking the behavior of real-time streams is adde ...

Srinivas Ramanathan, Deborah L Caswell: Method and system for automatic discovery of network services. Hewlett Packard Company, September 4, 2001: US06286047 (238 worldwide citation)

A method for identifying services, service elements and dependencies among the services and service elements includes executing first and second phases of discovery. In the first phase, the services and service elements are detected, as well as a first set of dependencies. The second phase is based ...

Srinivas Ramanathan, Deborah L Caswell, Scott S Neal, Marc Nijdam: Automated service elements discovery using core service specific discovery templates. Hewlett Packard Company, January 30, 2001: US06182136 (133 worldwide citation)

A method and system for modeling services available via a network include selecting a core service that is to be modeled, forming a discovery template that is specific to the selected core service, and automatically discovering the elements which cooperate to provide the core service. The discovery ...

Srinivas Ramanathan, Edward H Perry, Tai Jin: Method and system for managing data service systems. Thomas X Li, March 21, 2000: US06041041 (96 worldwide citation)

A scheme is described for a data service system having a number of modules. Some of the modules are interdependent. To measure the status of an individual module, the scheme first collects measurements from a number of measurement routes that involve the module. Then the scheme analyzes the interdep ...

Srinivas Ramanathan, Tai Jin, Manjari Asawa: System for determining data transfer rates in accordance with log information relates to history of data transfer activities that independently stored in content servers. Hewlett Packard Company, June 15, 1999: US05913041 (87 worldwide citation)

A method and system of monitoring throughput of a data access system includes logging each transfer of data from a content server to a remote site, with each log entry including information indicative of transfer size, date, times, source and destination. The method includes accessing the log inform ...

Deborah L Caswell, Preeti N Bhoj, Sreenivasa N Rao, Srinivas Ramanathan: Diagnostic system for a distributed data access networked system. Hewlett Packard Company, Thomas X Li, October 12, 1999: US05964891 (72 worldwide citation)

A diagnostic system for a data access networked system (e.g., an Internet/Intranet access networked system) is described. The data access networked system includes a number of data service systems coupled together. Each of the data service systems is independently administrated. The diagnostic syste ...

Srinivas Ramanathan, Edward H Perry: Method and system for evaluating user-perceived network performance. Hewlett Packard Company, Thomas X Li, June 13, 2000: US06076113 (59 worldwide citation)

A scheme of evaluating performance of a network connecting a remote terminal to a data service system is described. The scheme emulates a communication protocol to transfer data reliably and in sequence with congestion control. The communication protocol includes mechanisms for acknowledgment and re ...

Mark D Smith, Deborah L Caswell, Srinivas Ramanathan: Modeling of internet services. Agilent Technologies, Alexander J Neudeck, October 24, 2000: US06138122 (41 worldwide citation)

The dependancies of a computer service are modeled. The modeling hierarchically defines the relationships between the computer service and the hardware and software services which the computer service depends. These relationships may be contained in data structures defining a directed acyclic graph. ...

Srinivas Ramanathan, Balamurugan Vaidhinathan: Root-cause approach to problem diagnosis in data networks. eGurkha, Law Offices of Terry McHugh, March 2, 2004: US06701459 (39 worldwide citation)

A method of monitoring a data network includes storing topology information that identifies interconnections and interdependencies among network components, as well as links between websites and the components. Each component is also mapped to relevant protocol layers of a hierarchy of protocol laye ...
