  • Publication number: 20170147488
    Abstract: Examples relate to providing concurrent dead actor collection. In some examples, a blocked notification is received from an actor of a number of actors in a distributed system, where the actors are arranged in an actor hierarchy that describes communication links between the actors. In response to receiving the blocked notification, a blocked status is requested from each other actor in a loop subset of the actors, where each of the other actors is connected to the actor in the actor hierarchy by an incoming edge. After using the blocked status of each of the other actors to determine that incoming edges of the actor refer to blocked actors, the actor is designated for garbage collection.

    Abstract: Provided is a method of preserving object code translations of a library for future reuse by an emulator. A munmap(2) system call is intercepted from an application for unmapping a mapped library memory address. A determination is made if an entry related to the mapped library memory address is present in a first predefined data structure. If said entry is present, a determination is made if the mapped library memory address corresponds to a library text or library data. If the mapped memory address corresponds to the library text, said entry is flagged as inactive in the first predefined data structure, and an object code translation of the library text is preserved in the mapped library memory address. If the mapped library memory address corresponds to the library data, contents of the mapped address are reset to zero.

    Abstract: A printing system includes a printhead to eject ink onto a print medium in a print zone. A first roller pair is adjacent to the print zone to advance a print medium into the print zone. A second roller pair upstream from the first roller pair, and driven by an independent motor, advances the print medium to the first roller pair in a position control mode. A controller causes the second roller pair to switch from the position control mode to a force control mode when a leading edge of the print medium reaches the first roller pair. The second roller pair applies a substantially constant force to the print medium in the force control mode to push the leading edge of the print medium against the first roller pair while the first roller pair is stationary.

  • Patent number: 9651425
    Abstract: A color sensor array includes a plurality of sensors. Each of the plurality of sensors has a width dimension and a length dimension that is elongated with respect to the width dimension. The length dimensions of the sensors are substantially equal to one another and parallel to an illumination plane. Each of the plurality of sensors includes a face defined by opposing first and second elongated sides and opposing first and second non-elongated sides. The first non-elongated sides of the plurality of sensors are aligned with one another along an axis that is substantially perpendicular to the illumination plane.

  • Patent number: 9652174
    Abstract: In an example, an analytic function to be performed on data stored in an input block is managed through an interface to a framework through which a user is to define the analytic function. The framework is to buffer batches of the data into a memory through implementation of a Reader, a Writer, a PreReader, and a PreWriter on the data stored in the input block when the user-defined analytic function is performed, and wherein the Reader, the Writer, the PreReader, and the PreWriter are individually movable with respect to each other in the input block. In addition, the user-defined analytic function is received through the interface.

  • Patent number: 9652477
    Abstract: An object potentially belongs to a number of topics. Each topic is characterized by a probability distribution profile of a number of representative items that belong to the topic. Sample items are selected from the object, less than a total number of items of the object. A probability that the object belongs to each topic is determined using the probability distribution profile characterizing each topic and the sample items selected from the object.

  • Patent number: 9652509
    Abstract: A method to prioritize a plurality of tests in a continuous deployment pipeline. The method ranks the plurality of tests based on a test attribute and a test context to provide a test rank for each of the plurality of tests. The method sets a test set for the continuous deployment pipeline using the test ranks. The method executes the test set in the continuous deployment pipeline.

  • Patent number: 9652638
    Abstract: An electronic device has a lower power state in which power to a storage device is disabled. Predetermined information stored in a memory is useable to unlock the storage device during a procedure to transition the electronic device from the lower power state to a higher power state. The predetermined information is different from a credential for use in unlocking the storage device.

  • Patent number: 9652811
    Abstract: A regular mesh of rectangular cells (76) of uniform size is defined. The regular mesh is aligned with a non-rectangular layout boundary (18) such that a count of ones of the cells (76) having at least a prescribed fraction of their size contained within the layout boundary (18) is maximized. A layout (34) of frames (36) within the layout boundary (18) is determined based on the locations of the cells (76) with respect to the layout boundary (18), wherein the frames (36) define respective size dimensions and positions of respective views (47) of graphic objects (12) on a page (38). The views (47) of the graphic objects (12) arranged in accordance with the layout (34) of the frames (36) are outputted on the page (38).
