  • Publication number: 20170085754
    Abstract: Examples relate to providing synchronized look-up table loading. In some examples, a print job is processed using an initial look-up table in processor memory, in response to the processing of the print job reaching a buffer trigger row of a portion of the print job, look-up metadata is accessed to locate a next look-up table. At this stage, the next look-up table is dynamically loaded into the processor memory as the processor continues to process the print job, where the processing of the print job begins using the next look-up table after a target row of the portion of the print job is reached.

The management module is to (i) add the audio file to a queue to be output by the speaker; (ii) analyze the audio file to determine a baseline audio level for the audio file, and utilize the determined baseline audio level to normalize an audio level of another audio file subsequently added to the queue; and (iii) in response to the number of audio files in the queue decreasing below a threshold, analyze metadata from audio files previously or currently in the queue to determine attribute information, and request audio content from an Internet service provider based on the attribute information.

  • Patent number: 9595289
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and machine-readable media provide device-level functionality without altering device memory. A non-transitory machine-readable medium can store a first set of instructions that are executed by the machine to provide device-level functionality unsupported by a second set of instructions stored in device memory associated with the machine without altering the second set of instructions stored in the device memory. For example, the machine can be an optical disc player and the medium can be an optical disc.

  • Patent number: 9594590
    Abstract: Methods and systems of migrating applications (105-1 to 105-3) with dynamic operating system containers (205-1, 205-2) are disclosed, in which a number of applications (105-1 to 105-3) currently executed within a first operating system environment are identified for migration to a second operating system environment; a new operating system container (205-1, 205-2) is created within the first operating system environment; the number of identified applications (105-1 to 105-3) are transferred into the operating system container (205-1, 205-2); and the operating system container (205-1, 205-2) is migrated to the second operating system environment.

  • Patent number: 9592001
    Abstract: An implantable nanosensor includes a stent to be implanted inside a fluid conduit. The stent has a well in a surface of the stent. The implantable nanosensor further includes a nanoscale-patterned sensing substrate disposed in the well. The nanoscale-patterned sensing substrate is to produce an optical scattering response signal indicative of a presence of an analyte in a fluid carried by the fluid conduit when interrogated by an optical stimulus signal.

  • Patent number: 9596302
    Abstract: A method of migrating a number of applications from a first network to a second network comprises, with a processor, creating a dependency data set for a first network, creating a migration plan to migrate a number of applications from the first network to a second network based on the dependency data set, and migrating a number of applications from the first network to the second network based on the migration plan. A migration device for migrating a number of applications from a first network to a second network, comprises a processor, and a data storage device communicatively coupled to the processor, in which the processor creates a dependency data set for the first network, and migrates a number of applications from the first network to the second network based on the dependency data set.

  • Patent number: 9596239
    Abstract: A system has a virtual overlay infrastructure mapped onto physical resources for processing, storage and network communications, the virtual infrastructure having virtual entities for processing, storage and network communications. Virtual infrastructures of different users share physical resources but are isolated. Each infrastructure has its own infrastructure controller to create and configure the infrastructure. It has a user accessible part (CFC) for configuration of that user's infrastructure, and a user inaccessible part (UFC) able to access the mapping and the physical resources. This increases user control to ease system administration, while maintaining security by limiting access to the mapping.

  • Patent number: 9596301
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide methods and systems for leadership allocation in a distributed computer system. In certain embodiments of the present invention, a leader-election-service process runs within each node of a distributed computer system, together cooperatively providing a distributed-leader-election service. The distributed-leader-election service employs a distributed consensus service to manage distributed state information related to roles and leadership allocation within a distributed computer system. Client processes within each node interface with the leader-election-service process of the node in order to assume leadership of particular roles within the distributed computer system. Leadership-allocation management is thus centralized, within each node. In alternative embodiments, the distributed-leader-election service may be implemented as a collection of library routines that run in the context of client processes.
