What is the name of these braces attached to the rafters. They are connected to the ceiling joist, but not to uniformly.

The are also missing toward the center rafters. I think to make room for a new heating plenum, and coincidentally the center rafters are sagging.

The IRC calls them braces. See figure R802.5.1
