A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11924027B1) discloses a system and method for reducing wasted computational resources in conglomerate-application-based ecosystems by detecting network operation validation anomalies. The system includes hardware processors and non-transitory memory storing instructions to detect, receive, store, and validate network operations between microservice software applications. By analyzing log files and applying validation processes based on rules, the system can prevent the transmission of network operations that fail validation, thus optimizing computational resources. Additionally, the system can generate messages for display on a graphical user interface to indicate validation failures, enabling efficient monitoring and management of network operations.

Furthermore, the patent describes a method that involves providing, receiving, identifying, and validating network operations within software applications. By determining validation processes based on rules and characteristics associated with network operations, the method can effectively identify and prevent the transmission of invalid network operations. The method also includes generating messages for display on a graphical user interface to communicate validation failures, enhancing visibility and control over network operation processes. Additionally, the method involves historical message analysis, user query processing, and response generation using a Large Language Model (LLM) to further optimize network operation validation and resource utilization in conglomerate-application-based ecosystems.
