  • Patent number: 9870342
    Abstract: According to one technique, a modeling computer computes a Hessian matrix by determining whether an input matrix contains more than a threshold number of dense columns. If so, the modeling computer computes a sparsified version of the input matrix and uses the sparsified matrix to compute the Hessian. Otherwise, the modeling computer identifies which columns are dense and which columns are sparse. The modeling computer then partitions the input matrix by column density and uses sparse matrix format to store the sparse columns and dense matrix format to store the dense columns. The modeling computer then computes component parts which combine to form the Hessian, wherein component parts that rely on dense columns are computed using dense matrix multiplication and component parts that rely on sparse columns are computed using sparse matrix multiplication.

  • Patent number: 9871346
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments relate to a system that implements a hybrid laser. This system includes a reflective gain medium (RGM) comprising an optical gain material coupled to a mirror. This RGM is coupled to a spot-size converter (SSC), which optically couples the RGM to an optical reflector through a silicon waveguide. The SSC converts an optical mode-field size of the RGM to an optical mode-field size of the silicon waveguide. During operation, the RGM, the spot-size converter, the silicon waveguide and the silicon mirror collectively form a lasing cavity, wherein an effective thermo-optic coefficient (TOC) of a portion of the lasing cavity that passes through the optical gain material and the SSC material is substantially the same as the TOC of silicon. Finally, a laser output is optically coupled out of the lasing cavity.

  • Patent number: 9871800
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, described herein is a system and method for providing application security in a cloud computing or other environment. A plurality of hot-spot configurations define API usages which, for security reasons, are of interest to be monitored at runtime, such as invocations of particular methods that are likely to be used to attempt unauthorized access. Upon a user application being received for deployment to the cloud environment, an application compiler determines, for API usages expressed as method invocations within the source code of the application, one or more hot-spot configurations and associated policies or actions. The application compiler can then inject the user application to provide a security manager that, during runtime, monitors the methods and values invoked, and communicates with one or more security extensions to grant or deny access.

  • Patent number: 9870412
    Abstract: A cluster manager manages copies of a mid-tier database as a mid-tier database cluster. The cluster manager may concurrently manage a backend database system. The cluster manager is configured to monitor for and react to failures of mid-tier database nodes. The cluster manager may react to a mid-tier database failure by, for example, assigning a new active node, creating a new standby node, creating new copies of the mid-tier databases, implementing new replication or backup schemes, reassigning the node's virtual address to another node, or relocating applications that were directly linked to the mid-tier database to another host. Each node or an associated agent may configure the cluster manager during initialization, based on common cluster configuration information. Each copy of the mid-tier database may be, for example, a memory resident database. Thus, a node must reload the entire database into memory to recover a copy of the database.

  • Publication number: 20180011787
    Abstract: Techniques for performing garbage collection on an object array using array chunk references is described. A garbage collector (GC) thread identifies an object array to be processed. The GC thread divides the object array into array chunks. The GC thread generates array chunk references corresponding respectively to the array chunks. Each array chunk reference comprises: (a) chunk start bits representing a memory address of a start of a corresponding array chunk, and (b) chunk length bits representing a chunk length of the corresponding array chunk. The GC thread pushes the array chunk references onto the processing stack. A single processing stack concurrently stores multiple array chunk references, associated with a same object array. One or more of the array chunk references, that are associated with the same object array and stored on the processing stack, may be distributed to other GC threads for processing.

  • Publication number: 20180004533
    Abstract: In various embodiments, application development tools can allow developers to control whether or not an attribute of a view object is displayed by declaratively associating a data security privilege with the attribute. Associating a data security privilege with the attribute can be done by adding a specially named custom property on the view object attribute. Modifications to a base class can provide any necessary support to retrieve the privilege and determine whether a current user is allowed to view the attribute for the current record/row. If the user is authorized to view the attribute for the current record/row, then the attribute value is returned and displayed. Otherwise, redacting information, such as “*****” can be returned and displayed.
