Method and apparatus for displaying health status of network devices

A method and apparatus for concurrently displaying from a single window on a network management station the health status of all network devices and objects of a computer network. The network devices may be categorized according to state or device type, as determined by the network manager. The method and apparatus provides a network manager with the ability to determine the current state of network devices and objects within an enterprise network and invoke further actions such as configuration, performance, fault, and security management tasks. The network manager can drag and drop icons from one network management system application window to another network management system application window to obtain fault information about network devices and objects, thus allowing multiple network management system applications to run concurrently on the same network management station. The network manager is further able to add new network devices and objects by dragging site, folder or device icons from one network management system application window to a second network management system application window for displaying the health status of the new devices. The dragged-in devices are added to the appropriate status panes within the second window according to the method of the present invention.

System and method for the aggregation and matching of information

Embodiments of the invention enable users with communication devices to access affiliate profiles and perform matches on profiles aggregated from multiple independent computer systems regardless of communications device type or operating system and regardless of affiliate match server computer type, operating system or language. Affiliate profiles may comprise user profiles, advertisement profiles or coupon profiles. In addition, embodiments of the invention allow users to broadcast their location with their permission and join groups based on location parameters and connect to or dial other users by alias without knowledge of a machine address or phone number. Embodiments of the invention utilize information from each user in the form of a profile containing metadata. Examples of the type of metadata that comprises a profile include various categories of information describing a user, group, advertisement or coupon. In addition, the profile may comprise the user's groups and the user's preferences including filters for calculating matches with other user, group, advertisement and coupon profiles. Profiles are typically stored on a community engine server, but may also reside in distributed components configured to interface with the community engine server. A user profile may comprise a flag and other fields for example that signify that a user is interested in receiving advertisements for cars and for the type of car that the user is interested in. When a car dealership accepts delivery of a particular model that the user is interested in, the community engine server finds that affiliate profiles comprising aggregated car dealership advertisements include the same car type that the user is interested in and forward the matching advertisement profile to the user. The user may be paid for the advertisement in cash or coupons for accepting the advertisement. A user profile may also comprise a coupon flag and for example when a store that is an affiliate member provides coupon profiles to the community server engine a user may obtain desired coupons that match the user's profile settings if the user's profile is set to accept coupons. A user may match advertisements and coupons based on a location parameter and may transfer or trade advertisements and coupons with other users. The communication device may be capable of displaying a bar code in it's graphical interface while at a store so as to eliminate the need to physically present coupons.

Scalable IP-based notification architecture for unified messaging

A notification architecture utilizes multiple processes configured for managing notification operations based on reception of SMTP-based messages within IMAP based message stores. The notification architecture enables use of multiple instances of a notification process, each configured for receiving notification messages for respective subscribers from messaging sources according to a prescribed open protocol such as Internet Protocol. Each notification process accesses subscriber profile information from an open protocol-based subscriber directory based on the received notification messages. Each notification process determines, for each received notification message, the subscriber's notification preference based on the accessed profile information, and selectively outputs a notification delivery message according to a prescribed open protocol to at least one notification delivery process within the notification architecture based on the subscriber's notification preference. Each notification process may have access via the prescribed open protocol to multiple notification delivery processes, each configured for outputting a notification to a subscriber's notification device according to a corresponding device protocol. Multiple instances of each type of notification delivery process may also be utilized for increased capacity. Hence, subscribers may be notified of events according to their respective preferences, including subscriber device type, or time of notification. Moreover, the notification architecture can be scaled without adversely affecting any existing instances of the notification process or the notification delivery processes.

System and method for efficiently installing and configuring device drivers in managed environments

A system for facilitating selection, installation, and configuration of device drivers in a managed environment. The system includes a first mechanism for automatically accessing information about a device for which a driver is to be installed on a computer connected thereto and providing a signal in response thereto. The information includes device type and operational capabilities. A second mechanism selects a driver for the device and installs and automatically configures the driver on the computer based on the signal. In a specific embodiment, the first mechanism includes a database that maintains the information, which is organized according to an asset identification number. The information includes first and second portions. The first portion of information is obtained and entered in the database upon installation of the device. The second portion of the information includes operating system and language information pertaining to the computer. The second mechanism includes a website portal accessible by via the computer for enabling downloading of the driver. The second portion of the information is obtained from headers that are automatically supplied to website portal user-interface software by a browser running on the computer and accessing the website portal. The user-interface software runs on the website portal and enables the user to enter the asset identification number into the website portal. The asset number enables the website portal to automatically select and/or build an appropriate driver package.

Systems and methods for supporting document centered discussion across heterogeneous devices and displays

The decreasing cost of communication has led to a focus on including workgroup participants based on their abilities rather than their physical location. However, collaboration workgroup participants are still dependent on electronic documents which are difficult or impossible to view on smaller web-enabled devices such as web-enabled phones, web-enabled personal digital assistants and the like. If the documents can be viewed at all, they must be pre-encoded for a single format supported across all devices, or the range of participating devices must be limited to a single display type. Furthermore, some document types may require hardware upgrades including expanded memory to load the additional code necessary to view the document. This excludes impromptu workgroup formation since the device types of the collaborating users and/or the set of required documents for a meeting cannot always be predicted. Moreover, even when a document has been previously encoded, collaboration is difficult due to the inability to view the overall structure of the page. Accordingly the techniques presented allow for impromptu access to documents in the native application format. The collaboration of users within a document is facilitated by allowing the users to indicate context within the document for collaboration based on the display capabilities of each user's device.
