  • Publication number: 20200219006
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for determining association rules using a machine learning technique on a subset of data to which the association rules might apply, and from which they can be determined. In particular, association rules are determined by tracking changes to attribute values of data objects having a type. The changed attribute value can be used as a consequent in an association rule. Values of other attributes of data objects having the changed attribute value can be used as antecedents in association rules. Values used in antecedents can be constrained, such as by limiting values to those associated with scope attributes or values satisfying a threshold occurrence frequency. In some cases, determined association rules can be automatically implemented, such as to process input or stored data for data objects of the type.

  • Patent number: 10708214
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining an overall message status in a message processing system having distributed message processing components. If there are no active status providers, the overall message status remains equal to an old status. If there is only one active status provider, an intermediate calculated status is equal to a message status of the active status provider. If there are more than one active status providers, an intermediate calculated status is equal to a highest priority message status among the active status providers. If there are one or more active status providers, the overall message status remains equal to the old overall message status if the old overall message status is a designated final status and if the old overall message status has a higher priority than that of the intermediate calculated status Otherwise, the overall message status is set equal to the intermediate calculated status.

  • Patent number: 10706077
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods for categorizing tables of a database into groups are provided. A set of queries used to access a database are processed to generate a log that identifies for each of the queries (i) a database operation associated with the query, (ii) a table of the database accessed via the query, and (iii) a column or columns of the table used by the query to access the table. Database operation criteria for categorizing database tables into groups are accessed. The criteria are based on a total number of times that a table is accessed by the set of queries and a number of times that the table is accessed using a column or group of columns. An algorithm that evaluates data of the log against the criteria is applied. The algorithm is configured to automatically categorize tables identified in the log into groups based on the evaluation.

  • Publication number: 20200210231
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for providing high-availability computing resources to service client requests. Groups of computing nodes are organized into loops, a given loop being configured to execute a particular subset of tasks, such as tasks with a hash value in a particular ranged serviced by a loop. Computing nodes within a loop can evaluate a task request to determine whether the task request conflicts with another task currently assigned to a node. If a computing node which sent out a task request determines that no conflict was identified, it can execute the task request. Communications within a loop can occur unidirectionally, such that a node which initiated a communication will receive the communication from the last loop node. Loops can be connected to form a ribbon, the ribbon providing a namespace for task execution, where hash ranges for the namespace are uniquely assigned to loops of the ribbon.
