Gregory L Renda, Archibald L Cobbs, Van Jacobson: System and method for providing access to a network with selective network address translation. Vernier Networks, Innovation partners, Charles E Gotlieb, October 24, 2006: US07127524 (79 worldwide citation)

A system and method controls access to a network. The system and method intercepts communications received from, and responses and other communications to, devices on the network. Communications may be forwarded to their intended destination if the sending device has sufficient privileges to do so, ...

Van Jacobson, Bob Felderman, Archibald L Cobbs, Martin Eberhard: System and method for allocatiing communications to processors and rescheduling processes in a multiprocessor system. SLT Logic, Patterson Thuente Skaar & Christensen PA, January 1, 2008: US07316017 (61 worldwide citation)

In a multiprocessor system, a system and method assigns communications to processors, processes, or subsets of types of communications to be processed by a specific processor without using a locking mechanism specific to the resources required for assignment. The system and method can reschedule pro ...

Van Jacobson, Li Fan, Kathleen Nichols: Method of detecting non-responsive network flows. Cisco Technology, Cesari and McKenna, August 23, 2005: US06934256 (36 worldwide citation)

A network device identifies a non-adaptive flow as follows. The network device drops packets on a random basis using a Random Early Detection (RED) algorithm. A classifier reads indicia of a selected flow from at least one field of a header of a packet received by the network device. The network dev ...

Van Jacobson, Kathleen Nichols, Chandrashekhar Appanna: Random early detection policer using randomization of packet drops. Cisco Technology, Cesari and McKenna, December 12, 2006: US07149187 (20 worldwide citation)

A Random Early Detection (RED) policer in accordance with the invention does not tail-drop arriving packets as being non-conforming. For instance, because the RED policer uses a running estimate such as an exponential weighted moving average (EWMA), for example, it allows the policer to absorb traff ...

Darren Kerr, Van Jacobson: Flexible, high performance support for QoS on an arbitrary number of queues. Cisco Technology, Cesari and McKenna, November 6, 2007: US07292578 (20 worldwide citation)

A VTMS queue scheduler integrates traffic shaping and link sharing functions within a single mechanism and that scales to an arbitrary number of queues of an intermediate station in a computer network. The scheduler assigns committed information bit rate and excess information bit rate values per qu ...
