  • Publication number: 20180203674
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for automating application development from requirements information for the application. The requirements information may comprise mockup images of GUI screens for the application, text information, and other information. A model is generated based upon the requirements information. The generated model can then subsequently be used to generate one or more implementations of the application. Generation of the model includes processing the requirements information to identify one or more data objects to be mapped or associated with one or more GUI screens of the application, and further determining, for a particular data object mapped to a particular GUI screen, mappings between one or more components of the particular screen to one or more components of the particular data object. The model stores information about the look-and-feel of the GUI screens and about mappings between data objects to screens and screen components to data object components.

  • Publication number: 20180203682
    Abstract: A method of executing processor-specific code to include board-specific optimizations in a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) may include executing first instructions that are specific to a processor, where the first instructions may be executed within a UEFI firmware routine. The method may also include detecting a portion of the first instructions that requires information to be processed or provided by second instructions, where the second instructions may be specific to a circuit board on which the processor is installed. The method may further include sending, through an intermediate dispatch function, a request for the information to be processed or provided by the second instructions, where the intermediate dispatch function can decouple the first instructions from the second instructions.

  • Patent number: 10025822
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for accurately estimating the cost of performing a join against “mirror format” data that is at least partially located in volatile memory. Mirror format data is a copy of on-disk data (a.k.a. persistent format data) stored in a different format in volatile memory. In the preferred embodiment described herein, the mirror format data is stored in a column-major format, while the persistent format data is stored in a row-major format. The cost of performing a join query with a particular join method against mirror format data is different than the cost of performing the same particular join method against persistent format data. Techniques described herein for estimating the cost of multiple join query execution plans, and selecting the most optimized plan.

  • Patent number: 10025820
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is provided for optimizing queries received by a database system that relies on an intelligent data storage server to manage storage for the database system. Storing compression units in hybrid columnar format, the storage manager evaluates simple predicates and only returns data blocks containing rows that satisfy those predicates. The returned data blocks are not necessarily stored persistently on disk. That is, the storage manager is not limited to returning disc block images. The hybrid columnar format enables optimizations that provide better performance when processing typical database workloads including both fetching rows by identifier and performing table scans.

  • Patent number: 10025823
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for filtering data from a table during an in-memory scan. Predicates are pushed to in-memory scan to avoid scanning unnecessary columnar units and reduce the overhead of decompressing, row stitching and distributing data during evaluation. Techniques are described herein for generating implied predicates that have conditions on single columns from complex predicates that have multiple conditions on the same column, which can be evaluated during an in-memory scan. Techniques are also described herein to reduce the overhead of a table scan for processing a join query. When redistributing a first table for performing a hash-join, the nodes performing an in-memory scan of the first table may create a filter that tracks unique values from the join key. Data from the second table is only processed and transferred to other nodes in the cluster if the values from the join key pass through the filter.

  • Patent number: 10027602
    Abstract: Implementations of the present disclosure involve an apparatus and/or method for an efficient packet queue depth sorting scheme for a ‘longest queue first’ based switch fabric device. In general, the sorting scheme compares a data queue length on an incoming port to a sorted queue of available ports based on longest queue. Based at least on the results of the comparison of the data queue length on the input port, a port designator is inserted into a re-sorted longest queue available port list in the proper position based on the incoming or outgoing port data length. The remaining entries are then sorted around the inserted port designator. Because the comparison and insertion of the port designator can occur in one clock cycle of the switch fabric device, efficiency of the switch is improved.

  • Publication number: 20180196831
    Abstract: Techniques described herein relate to systems and methods of data storage, and more particularly to providing layering of file system functionality on an object interface. In certain embodiments, file system functionality may be layered on cloud object interfaces to provide cloud-based storage while allowing for functionality expected from a legacy applications. For instance, POSIX interfaces and semantics may be layered on cloud-based storage, while providing access to data in a manner consistent with file-based access with data organization in name hierarchies. Various embodiments also may provide for memory mapping of data so that memory map changes are reflected in persistent storage while ensuring consistency between memory map changes and writes. For example, by transforming a ZFS file system disk-based storage into ZFS cloud-based storage, the ZFS file system gains the elastic nature of cloud storage.
