  • Patent number: 10152396
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and system for a time-based checkpoint target is provided for standby databases. Change records received from a primary database are applied for a standby database, creating dirty buffer queues. As the change records are applied, a mapping is maintained, which maps timestamps to logical times of change records that were most recently applied at the timestamp for the standby database. On a periodic dirty buffer queue processing interval, the mapping is used to determine a target logical time that is mapped to a target timestamp that is prior to a present timestamp by at least a checkpoint delay. The dirty buffer queues are then processed up to the target logical time, creating an incremental checkpoint. On a periodic header update interval, file headers reflecting a consistent logical time for the checkpoint are also updated. The intervals and the checkpoint delay are adjustable by user or application.

  • Patent number: 10154037
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for implementation of a data storage device as a security device for managing access to resources. These techniques can be implemented for multi-factor authentication (MFA) to provide multiple layers of security for managing access to resources in an enterprise and/or a cloud computing environments. As a security device, a storage device can be used a portable device to provide a point of trust for multi-factor authentication across any client application or device operated to access resources. A storage device may be configured with security data for authentication with an access management system. After configuration, a portable storage device may be used for authentication of a user without credential information at any client device based on accessibility of the device to the portable storage device. A storage device configured as a security device can ensure that legitimate users have an easy way to authenticate and access the resources.

  • Patent number: 10152436
    Abstract: Methods and systems for mutual exclusion in a non-coherent memory hierarchy may include a non-coherent memory system with a shared system memory. Multiple processors and a memory connect interface may be configured to provide an interface for the processors to the shared memory. The memory connect interface may include an arbiter for atomic memory operations from the processors. In response to an atomic memory operation, the arbiter may perform an atomic memory operation procedure including setting a busy flag for an address of the atomic memory operation, blocking subsequent memory operations from any of the processors to the address while the busy flag is set, issuing the atomic memory operation to the shared memory, and in response to an acknowledgement of the atomic memory operation from the shared memory, clearing the busy flag and allowing subsequent memory operations from the processors for the address to proceed to the shared memory.

  • Patent number: 10152354
    Abstract: To schedule a software thread for execution on a CPU in a multiprocessor system, a scheduler uses both software and hardware utilization information. For a thread, resource demands (including software and hardware resource demands) are determined based on measuring resource usage while the thread executes on the multiprocessor system without being isolated from any other threads that may run concurrently. For at least two processor cores, resource usage is calculated based on any threads already running on it. The software thread is assigned to a strand in the processor core with optimum available resources given the thread's resource demands.

  • Patent number: 10152412
    Abstract: Techniques herein are for chaining nonvolatile storage devices to achieve high availability. A method involves a storage server receiving a write request to store data blocks in a first nonvolatile memory device. The storage server comprises a plurality of nonvolatile memory devices that cache data blocks stored on primary storage. The plurality of nonvolatile memory devices comprises the first nonvolatile memory device. The storage server maintains a cache index of data blocks that reside in the plurality of nonvolatile memory devices. Based on one or more criteria, the storage server reroutes the write request to a second nonvolatile memory device of the plurality of nonvolatile memory devices and stores an identifier of the second nonvolatile memory device in the cache index.

  • Publication number: 20180348726
    Abstract: Techniques for error handling by a servomechanism are disclosed. The servomechanism determines, based on a first set of values assigned to servomechanism variables, electrical signals for controlling a component during a particular time interval, and applies the electrical signals to move the component. Subsequently, the servomechanism measures values for attributes associated with the component. Based on the measured attribute values, the servomechanism computes a second set of values for the servomechanism variables. Responsive to determining that the measured attribute values are erroneous, the servomechanism refrains from modifying the electrical signals based on the second set of values for the servomechanism variables.

  • Publication number: 20180351892
    Abstract: Systems and methods for the creation and management of electronic associations between social media systems and web pages. Such associations promote greater interactions between web page visitors and users of social media pages. A social graph management system (SGMS) receives information related to a web page, and creates associations between the web page and social media pages. A process of creating such associations involves configuration of social media software for insertion into the web page. Furthermore, creating associations also involves creation of an intermediary page (and related data structures) by the SGMS in order to direct traffic between the web page and social media pages. User activity in the web page is tracked in addition to web traffic arriving at the intermediary page at subsequent times for computation of various analytics.

  • Patent number: 10146678
    Abstract: Test bundling and batching by a test execution framework may be customized in accordance with test suite requirements for testing platform implementations on network-connected, resource-limited devices. Tests, test data and test results may be communicated in bundles or batches. Multiple tests may be bundled into a test application bundle and communicated over a single data connection. Test data for the tests in a bundle may be packaged into a single batch and transferred using a single data connection. Similarly, results from executing the tests in a test application bundle may be batched and transferred together over a single connection. Additionally, a custom user interface may be utilized to allow for customizing the test bundling policy for individual test suites. Providing the ability for a user to customize the test bundling policy may significantly reduce the number of data connections required during test suite execution.
